We're trying a new recipe this year with apple, ginger and cinnamon. I thought that sounded like an awesome combination. The recipe calls for vegetable stock but we're going to make some chicken broth instead. It's delicious.

We also skipped the candied ginger in favor of fresh.

I make the turkey the traditional way, it's the stuffing I like to gussy up. Water chestnuts, almonds, pine nuts, cranberries, anything I think interesting goes in. Sometimes it's rather busy chuckle.gif

I made a big turkey at thanksgiving, made turkey pot pies with the left overs and froze them. Pretty good! But the turkey for Christmas is smaller.

I bought a smaller turkey this time too, because noone here really likes leftovers.

I like to keep the roasting of a turkey simple, but this year I'm going to try a butter-herb technique that is rubbed under the skin. I posted a vid how to do this if anyone is interested. I will not be using rosemary, as does the chef in the vid, I may try oregano and parsley as an experient.

Happy feasting.

I'll just keep it simple the first try, garlic, sea salt and poultry seasoning, then see what could be added. Experiment with chicken maybe.

I'll probably use the same spices mentioned in my recipe, rosemary, sage, maybe a little thyme, black pepper and probably some other things, maybe even some dried ginger. I think I'll skip the cinnamon though. damned.gif

That's what I was thinking too, leave out the garlic maybe, but I think I will add a little parsley.

Turkeys will be cheap after Christmas, I may buy a couple. Chickens, poor abused little things, are 3x the price of turkey.

Have you ever tried to become a vegetarian Shadow?

I did a long time ago for two years, but then I developed anemia and my doc told me to eat meat again.

I asked my family recently if they would be interested in becoming vegetarian, everyone said 'no way'.

No, I went off meat for a while just because I had no appetite for it. I have cousins who are vegans, but they wear leather shoes so I decided it was more about being trendy than diet. lol
