Leftover Turkey Carcass Soup

When you’re done carving your turkey and enjoyed a sumptuous meal, do you often wonder what to do with your leftover turkey frame, or “carcass” as we like to call it at our house? I just know there’s lots of meat tucked in those hidden nooks and crannies. Well, years ago I did some research…
