We were so happy with the turkey our neighbor smoked that I wanted to be sure we used every little morsel of it. Vince took all the leftover meat off the bone. He put the white meat in one bag and we use that for sandwiches. The dark meat went into another bag for gumbo and casseroles. The bones went into another bag for making broth.
Yesterday I had started making the broth but it was after dinner before I was able to start the canning. The neighbor has his own recipe for a rub that he used so the seasoning was perfect! I boiled the bones and skin and ended up with 11 quarts of broth.
This will be so perfect for adding to the liquid when cooking beans! It was quite late by the time the canner finished and the pressure was down so I could get the jars out.
That’s 11:30 p.m., way past my bedtime, and then there was the late night conversation with my best girlfriend! We probably got off the phone well after 1 a.m.
But . . that didn’t stop someone from wanting breakfast bright and early!
I should really get new dishes, shouldn’t I? These are definitely outdated and kinda ugly but . . hey . . they still serve their purpose so maybe I’ll keep them another year or so.
Anyway . . I need a nap!
