I don't care to much for wild turkey gravee bird myself. too lean and the meat is usually dry and tough. *
well, i'll take our butchers local fresh birds for turkey. wild ones are just fun to see.
My parents always bought freerange turkeys from the Amish in Lancaster PA. Order in the spring and pick em up in November. But more and more farms raise good freerange birds now - including the Mennonite farm a few miles away - so its not hard to find good local raised organic turkeys. No need for those frozen butterball hormone monsters they sell at grocery stores.*
yeah, but would it be all that bad to get a sale turkey ot on thanksgiving? grr. i want 2 turkeys this year. so i can freeze 3/4 for later.
If it weren't for the few people who prefer the dark meat, I'd personally buy 3 8-10# turkey breasts, because they would all fit quite nicely in the Nesco.I'm also a fan of heart-stopping salad made with primarily cubed turkey, cubed cheese (per personal preference; I like Jarlsberg, baby swiss, or fontina), and mayo.Red or green grapes in the mix if you like, but you can really add just about anything.If I had my choice, it'd be marinated artichoke hearts and peppers before blueberries and chocolate chips.We do need to find someone local who raises the domesticated variety, rather than dealing with the rock-hard cheapos or the overpriced "fresh" (aka flash frozen) offerings at the local grocery syndicate.Check State, County, or 4-H listings for producers (and hope it ain't on the other side of the state).Lastly- I hope Obama names the White House turkey either Boehner or McConell, and lops its F*cking Head Off on live tv.
I'm right there with you on marinated artichoke hearts. Including steamed whole: peel back the leaves and dip in butter till ya get to the heart. Finding good local farm raised organic turkey is a lot easier than it used to be. At least it is around me. I would think you wouldn't have too much trouble finding some nearby.What I really miss are the local dairy farms eventhough I don't drink milk anymore. Used to be I'd go to the dairy a couple miles away to buy milk and cream - they had a walk in cooler in the barn and you'd just pull up to the barn go in this room next to the milking room and pull how ever many bottles you wanted from the cooler and leave your money in a cashbox. Some of those same dairies are still around (barely) but they no longer bottle their own milk.Looks like the Bronze Boner might get his dickhead loped off later today. NY Post story yesterday implicating him in some sexy-time honey fling-ding with some lobbyist bimbo... sounds like someone in the GOP pecking order wants his speaker job.*
as if a fling really would harm borange. maybe ore on his drinking.we get raw turkey breast. smallest they have. but last year i got 1 LARGE 1/2, so late at night i was trying to hack it in 1/2. this year i need to be clearer.
those turkey breasts are good for everyday lunches too. especially if you have a small deli meat slicer - !Nesco! (thats a shout out for PJK) My sister has one so i borrow hers. A lot cheaper than paying 7.99 a pound at the grocery store deli for someone else to slice it up for you.*
no slicer or nesco. just a vintage griswald chicken pot. my magic roaster gravee maker. an various other roasters. hmm, where did my big ham roaster go?
