Turkey Soup--the real deal

What to do with that left over turkey carcass from Thanksgiving. Here is a soup made with the same. I can remember this was my favorite soup that my grandmother used to make.
I've made turkey soup using the leftover carcass-in fact, the carcass from the bird we had at Thanksgiving is still waiting in the freezer. And, tomorrow is the day!!!
Here's what I do:
Simmer the bones in water enough to cover with 4 chicken bouillon cubes,
a teaspoon each of dried parsley, salt and pepper for 45 minutes to an hour.
Remove the bones and strain the broth.
You can refrigerate the broth at this point to let the fat rise to the top, then skim it off.
Remove the meat from the bones and return to the broth.
Add the following to the broth:
1/2 cup chopped celery
3 or 4 carrots, sliced
1 onion, chopped
2 or 3 potatoes, chopped
1 cup pearl barley
Bring to boil, reduce heat, and simmer til tender.
Season with salt and pepper
