"I have made this soup after Thanksgiving every time I was the hostess and had the leftovers--about 7-8 times! It's a fabulous concoction of all things good and good for you! I DO make the homemade broth from the carcass the day before I serve this soup and I love the flavors that the sage, bay leaves, and cloves add to the broth. Who could go back to a can of Campbell's turkey Noodle soup after this?!"
