  • stuffing dredge (recipe above)
  • herb mix (1/4 cup thyme,1/4 cup rosemary,1/4 cup sage)

  2. Combine ingredients for herb mix. Set aside still tenders are done frying.

  4. Fry in canola oil at 325°F until golden brown, and they’ve reached 165°F internal temp.

Turkey has got to have it’s gravy.

Broth

  2. Toss into a pot at least a gallon with the onion and ginger.

  4. Now forget everything you’ve been taught about making stock. We want a milky creamy stock. 
  5. Keep it boiling hard and keeping filling up to the imaginary line that you want to keep it at with water as needed. 
  6. After about 2-3 hours, blend with an immersion blender or chop up with knife. 
  7. Keep boiling for another 3-4 hours or overnight simmer like I did.
