Being herbivores ourselves, we don't cook much meat in our house. But, seeing as how we had 20 guests for the holiday coming over who are more than likely meat eaters, John brought us down a turkey and so kindly cooked it for our feast. After all the good meat had been sliced off and saved in the fridge, I became determined to get ALL of the rest of it off and turn the scraps and broth into dog food for Crum, since no one else wanted it. In the spirit of the early native Americans, if we're going to kill an animal, let's be sure to use all of it. Here's our 4 hour project in a photo montage. VEGANS! AVERT YOUR EYES NOW!
Here I am, boiling the bones down.One clean carcass! And a house filled with the smell of turkey. Note the spray bottle on the counter for spraying Crum because he was whining so much in the kitchen.
I left out some other gross photos, but here's the final product! I added in some carrots, spinach, rice, and black eyed peas to the broth and meat and blended it up. My hand is in there for bowl size reference!
Kim had a great idea of freezing them in muffin tins so they were individual size servings! It's working out nicely, but taking my whole freezer. I had to make Seth get rid of his beloved Otter Pops to make room.
