We have been cleaning out our freezer and that big turkey was in there, waiting to get out.
We have cooked 56 pounds of turkey since Thanksgiving morning. Someone I know needs to curb the urge to buy things just because there is a "good deal." Baby steps...
We used a new injection recipe from my brother, Al. My people know how to cook!!! You can find the recipe in my collection. I've cleverly named it, "Al's Turkey Marinade." The marinade ingredients include garlic juice, lemon juice, tabasco sauce and liquid smoke. Although the list of ingredients seems to suggest the meat would be spicy, that is not the case. The finished flavors are very subtle and very delicious. Paul took this picture right before we carved up the big guy.
Excellent, Al! Thanks for the recipe!!!
Today, I am making a ginormous pot of turkey stock from all of the bones, also to be divided up and to be sent to our children's kitchens. I hope their freezers can handle it!
Why are we
blowing this popsicle stand. Taking our cabin on wheels and
heading to warmer latitudes. Our freeze alarm, smoke alarms and security system are all tested and ready to go. The ranch is now a fort.
Florida, here we come. We have some International Rummy games waiting for us down there!!!
