Turkey Noodle Soup

        Wonderful Good Turkey Noodle Soup ! Cold nights call for a bowlful of this ! Don't you agree?

1 Turkey Carcass
2 Onions Chopped
3 Celery Ribs Chopped
4 Carrots Sliced into thin circles
3 TBS Parsley Chopped ( dried parsley is ok)
1 LB Kluski Noodles ( or any egg noodle you like )
Cooked Turkey picked from the Turkey Carcass

Place turkey carcass in a large pot of water & bring to a boil. Simmer 1 hour. Turn off heat & remove the carcass from the water place on a plate to cool. Strain broth for any bones  & then pour back into the pot. Bring broth up to a simmer & add all of the vegetables & parsley. Cook until carrots are for tender about 30 minutes. Stir in noodles and if you need more water add it to fill the pot and cook . Pick the meat from the bones dicing any large pieces of meat. You should have about 2 cups of meat. If you do not have that much the soup will be delicious as the rich broth and egg noodles are the stars that shine in this soup but if you have meat left from your dinner & want to dice some up to throw in go right ahead.  Add the meat you cleaned from the bones & any extra that you wish  to the soup & continue to cook about 1 hour. Check for seasoning & add salt & pepper as desired.  If you have any leftover gravy you could add it to make the broth even richer.
Many people from this area of Lancaster would now add 3 diced up hard boiled eggs to the soup but I never cared for the eggs in my soup. If you do add the eggs do not freeze any of your soup because the egg get very rubbery when frozen.  This soup will make about 1 & 1/2 Gallons of soup & I like to freeze some for later use !
