Boiling the Bones Empty
PostSubject: Boiling the Bones   Boiling the Bones EmptyFri Nov 27, 2009 4:00 pm

This year, as every year, we cooked the largest turkey out there. Most of it was eaten or taken home and what was left is off the bones. All the carcass is in the pot and boiling down. The whole goop will be strained out, the bones and goop will go out to the woods for the coons and whomever else finds a free meal. All the strained soup will be frozen with the rest of the left over turkey in portions small enough for dinner and gravy for two.

IF I were a feral cat, a fox, a coon, opposum, skunk, polecat, wild pig, I would smile when I found the treat of all that left over bones, skin, fat and icky stuff out there in the woods. It would be enough for me to believe.

What do you do with your turkey carcass?

Love,
Betty

Dear Joe,
I do all that home made stuff. It is because I am here and know how to do it. Most people I know go the easy way. It does not really make mine any better, I do not think.

Even though we had lots of people take lots of stuff home, lots of turkey is still here.

My dogs have longing in their eyes.

Love,
Betty

Dear Joe,
I am glad you had a nice day and that Dusty had the pleasure of all the turkey smells. My dogs did not get but a tid bit each. They are all old and cannot take a change in diet without explosive consequences. Thay do have nice dreams, though.

Goodnight, my friend. Tomorrow is a new day.


Love,
Betty

Throw it out. No foxes or opossoms around here to give it to. I do have a woodpecker, but I'm trying to get rid of him, not encourage him to stay.

Tomorrow I'll throw the turkey leftovers into a big pot of chili.

Aunt Norma's Turkey and Spaghetti - boil down the carcass, but save the last bits of meat along with the broth - you can usually get 2-3 cups of little turkey slivers. Add a can of tomatoes, sauteed onions and green peppers to the broth, simmer about 20 minutes, remove the veggies but keep them, then cook a package of spaghetti in the broth, cooking the broth down to a thick sauce (remove the spaghetti when it is done and keep with the veggies.) Add about two cups of grated cheddar cheese along with the spaghetti and veggies and fold it all together.

Dear Ann,
God bless Aunt Norma.

After boiling down the carcass, straining it, and all the hoopla that went with that, I put it in bags and froze the whole mess. The coons and other critters are sneaking up on the carcass bones as I type this post. Thanksgiving is finally over,.

Love,
Betty

Dear LC,
I imagine I am lucky to have critters round and about who will eat the carcass that will be left in the woods. I wonder what kind of woodpeckers you have. We have the small, red-headed ones who peck away and make nests in the tops of the electric poles and then we have the large, pilleated ones that are beautiful and go for the dead trees. They fill the woods with a jungle sound of cackling and cawing. These sounds, these small animals, enhance my life by their being.

Love,
Betty

We always make soup from the carcass. My daughter said she was already working on it yesterday. She made stuffing from scratch, the same recipe that has been in the family or generations, but she made it in the crock pot.

My daughter in Virginia did the same for just her and her husband, making the full Troestler homemade Thanksgiving dinner with sweet potatoes and pie.

I don't have one. My cans go in the recycling bin.

We all enjoyed our soybean alternative.

I, too, boil the bones and make soup with vegetables on hand. Then I freeze it in single-serving containers and have it for a quick lunch or a quick fix if I catch a cold in the winter.

Dear Alice,
I cannot even imagine the soy bean alternative to turkey and gravy, mashed potatoes and green beans. I feel that you are deprived!

Helen, I do the same, only for two.

Love,
Betty

The kind that drums incessantly for fifteen minutes at a time and has caused damage to an exterior wall, right under the roof overhang. I am looking in the garage for a slingshot.
