Very nice. I used the slow cooker instead of stove top. Load everything in, I had to break up the carcass to make it fit, cover and cook on low overnight. The next morning, strain the solids and you are done. I do add the skin from the turkey but the fat rises to the top after it chills and can easily be scooped off.

It was really good after one critical step - refrigerate overnight & skim off the layer of fat, otherwise it tastes oily, especially if you have much skin or fat left on the carcass.
