Start with Homemade Turkey Stock!
I'm sure all these soups will still taste good even if you make them with canned chicken broth, but making homemade stock from a turkey carcass that simmers all day with onions, carrots and celery really takes turkey soup to a whole new level. In my family I'm famous for making turkey stock in the roasting pan, and I always try to end up with the turkey carcass no matter where I'm having Thanksgiving dinner.

Chef and food blogger Michael Ruhlman actually roasts turkey wings before the holiday so he can make turkey stock for Thanksgiving gravy. Jen at Modern Beet also weighs in on homemade turkey stock, and Israeli Kitchen uses turkey necks to make stock. Once your turkey stock is made, here are my top ten picks for turkey soup, in no particular order.
