Default Off to Visit the Farm

Thanks to Jay C. and other here and after doing my research, I have finally found several resources for fully grassfed beef, lamb and poultry that also meet my Kosher requirements.

Anyway, that being the case I am going to visit the farm tomorrow and help out with the production of "Koshering" turkeys. I am really excited about helping out and "meeting" my meat!

I was also told there is the possibility of getting some turkey gizzards and liver. Anyone ever use these parts and how? Also what about duck, which will also be available??

Good job S.

Gizzards are great pan fried in fat, for that matter, anything is good pan fried in fat.

Default What About Duck?

Sarena,

Google a recipe for Confit. Basically, its browned duck or goose that is very slowly stewed in its own fat. It's actually used for preservation of the meat in France. I haven't made this in a while, but if I could find some good duck, it'd be my first choice.

So my trip to the farm was eventtful in itself. jay I am not sure why I ever listened to you and quit being vegan

Anyway, I went to "help" a small coop that is starting up. Little did I know I would be there to watch and participate in the ritual slaughter, eviserating, defeathering, koshering etc..... It was a long day and I was only there for about 6hrs and they were not even 1/2 way done the goal for today!!

I came home with 2 13# turkeys. One is already in my friend's smoker overnight!! I have never seen or been exposed to so much blood and gore in a few hours.

All in all, it was a great learning experience. I also learned from the farmer that Colgate toothpaste gets the smell out of your hands really well. I also learned that I need to wear rubber boots next time. Oops I said next time......

More people should take an active role in seeing/preparing their food. I think it would give them a new respect for the farmer and the animal.

Good job.

Good job.

You are right, but then most ppl think meat/food comes in styrofoam trays shrink wrapped with plastic. Wrote about the experience more on my blog.
