The end of last week, the youth leader of our church bagged a wild turkey and brought it to us.
How in the world does one fix a wild turkey, because Internet…they are the scrawniest looking things!
First I brined it for about 24 hours. I really think this was key.
Then I plopped this wee 8½ little lady down on some carrot and potato.
Gave it the salt and pepper treatment.
Since the poor thing was skinless, I gave her some skin.
In the form of pork.
Oh! How I love pork!
Then I roasted it for 15 minutes per pound at 350º.
It was tender, juicy and not in the least bit gamey.
I feel like Laura Ingalls Wilder.
