Old Man's Turkey Noodle Soup Recipe

  • 3 leg, bone removeds turkey drumsticks
  • 3 quarts water
  • 2 large onions, chopped
  • 4 carrot, (7-1/2")s carrots, chopped
  • 3 stalks celery, chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon salt

  1. Combine the turkey drumsticks and water in a large soup pot and bring to a boil. Stir in onions, carrots, celery, garlic, salt, black pepper, sage, thyme, rosemary, and celery salt; reduce heat to a simmer. Cook until the turkey meat is very tender, about 2 hours.
