After Thanksgiving Soup

Want to know what you can do with all those turkey bones?  Make soup.

First, put the bones into a large pot and cover with water.  To the water add a small amount of vinegar to help draw out some calcium from the bones into the stock.  ( No, you won't be able to taste it.  Promise.)
Simmer the bones in the water for a half hour to an hour.
Remove the bones from the broth.  Don't throw away!
Cool the broth in the refrigerator until any fat comes to the surface and can be skimmed off.
Meanwhile, remove any remaining meat from the bones and set it aside for the soup.  Safely discard the bones.
Prep 2 ribs of celery, 3 carrots, 1 onion for the soup by chopping fine.

Place the vegetables into the cooled and skimmed broth, along with the meat you got off the bones.  Cook at a simmer until your vegetables are tender.
Now add 1 cup uncooked noodles or pasta and cook until the noodles/pasta is tender.  Seas with salt and pepper to taste.
