Here's how to do it.
First you have to take the turkey off the bone, being careful to select the best pieces for soup and leaving the larger slices of meat - those are best for sandwiches (which will make a wonderful lunch).
When you've picked out the best pieces, you set them aside
Okay, then you need the broth. You can use the leftover gravy and a couple cans of chicken broth. Or, you can boil the bones of the turkey for a couple of hours and strain out the juice for your stock. Then you need to chop up the ingredients. Here's what I used:
1) three cloves of garlic
2) two stocks of celery, plus the heart of the celery with the leaves (that's the most tender part)
3) two pounds of chopped carrots
4) 1/4 minced sweet onion
Then, I made some homemade egg noodles using the following ingredients:
1) 4 eggs
2) 3 and 1/2 cups of flour
3) 2 teaspoons of olive oil
You will need to beat the eggs and then slowly add in the flour and olive oil. Knead until it forms a ball and then roll out until it is as thin as you like (if you have a pasta machine - it's even easier). Then I roll it back up like a yule log and slice the pasta into strips.
I added the noodles and then boiled for about 20-30 minutes. Before serving I salt and peppered and WAH-LAH! Homemade turkey noodle soup.
