  1. Heat olive oil in a large stockpot over medium-high heat. Cook and stir 2 chopped carrots, onion, and celery until onion is golden, 7 to 10 minutes. Pour in wine and bring to a simmer. Add turkey carcass, chicken stock, water, bay leaf, and bouquet garni; bring mixture to a boil.
  2. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook, partially covered, for about 1 hour. Skim any fat that comes to the surface and discard.
  3. Remove turkey carcass and strain soup into a large saucepan over medium heat. Stir in leftover turkey and diced carrot; simmer until warmed through, about 5 minutes. Serve garnished with fresh tarragon.

The soup was easy, quick and sooo delicious. The one thing that I changed was that I added four more cups of water. The soup was still full of flavor.

This recipe was simple, concise, and delicious! Very easy to prepare, just loved the flavors! The only difference was I added some egg noodles and salt & pepper. Terrific turkey soup! Thank You for sharing.


Absolutely the best soup ever!!! My Mother-in-law always made turkey carcass soup but, this is by far the best ever! Thank you so much for your recipe!
