    Sage's Note:

    This is how I take care of the turkey carcass. But you can make this soup by following the directions and using 12 cups of chicken broth with 1/2 teaspoon of poulty seasoning. You can freeze the carcass and make the broth when convenient for you.

      I made this soup for tonights dinner, and even though the soup is a bit time consuming, in the end you will have a delicious tasting soup. I cooked this soup in my 6-quart slow-cooker, (which I highly suggest one uses a 6-quart slow-cooker) and I cooked the broth ingredients... the turkey, vegetables, spices, and water for exactly 13 hours. I did however add a few more spices to the broth, to make it more flavorable, such as... 2 Tablespoons of the chicken bouillon granules, as per instructed in the cooking directions, and not the 2 tsp., as listed in the ingredients, but I only added 1/4 teaspoon of the pepper, (rather than a 1/2 teaspoon) plus I also added 2 bay leaves. After straining the broth, and returning it to the slow-cooker, you will end up with 10-1/2 cups of the broth. When it came to adding the ingredients to make the soup, (the next day) I only added a 1/2 cup of diced onion, (rather than the 2 onions) and I thought that was more than enough onion (taste wise). But, I did add 4 carrots, thinly sliced (rather than the 2 carrots) plus I added 2 large cloves of garlic, minced. Instead of chopping the celery, I thinly sliced it, and the total amount of spices I added to the recipe were as follow... 1/4 tsp ground black pepper, 1/2 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp dried basil leaves, 1/2 tsp dried majoram, 1/2 tsp dried oregano, and 1/2 tsp dried thyme. As for the noodles, I added 7 ounces, (3-1/2 cups) of Creamettes Dumpling Egg Noodles, but next time I will use a firmer type of pasta, such as... Rotini (spiral shaped) macaroni, and add 8 ounces (2 cups). Also, I did add more turkey meat to the soup. I added 3 cups. One more thing, when adding the parsley, I used a dry parsley, and added just 1 tablespoon. Thank you Sage for posting this slow-cooked soup recipe. It was an easy way to make a soup with your leftover turkey carcass, meat, etc... Plus it was very good!!

      Sage, I was looking for a slow cooker recipe for this soup. This is delicious and so easy. I did not use the turkey carcass, just tossed in some of my cut up turkey meat. Doubled the thyme and poultry seasonning. Used "chicken base" that comes in a jar instead of bouillon. Used 7 oz Pennsylvania Dutch broad noodles. Delicious!! Great with a slice of Italian bread. Thanks for sharing. Chef #720649
