I had always been a great follower of Craig Claiborne and Pierre Franey of The New York Times, and learned to cook by following their recipes. They printed this recipe in 1987, from which I learned to make a rich, delicious stock and heartwarming soup. I have continued this tradition for 21 years now, and am posting this recipe here so that I am assured of never losing it! Over the years, though, I have made some personalization to it. For instance, my habit has been, after dinner, to remove all meat from the turkey frame. I then immediately put the entire turkey frame in a huge stockpot with enough water to cover, and add the rest of the stock ingredients. Instead of cooking it for 1 hour, though, I usually let it simmer for anywhere from 3 to 4 hours. Before I go to bed for the evening, I strain the soup, let it cool, and refrigerate for use the next day. That Thanksgiving Friday, I skim the fat off the chilled stock, and then prepare the soup as directed. Again, I must reiterate, it is delicious!
