We enjoyed a wonderful Thanksgiving meal with our friends Wednesday. The main dinner was Thursday with my family. This included the local pastured turkey from the farm, sweet potatoes from my mom’s garden, pumpkin pie made with Cinderella pumpkin, local cream and eggs, local corn, beans, potatoes and rolls made with local butter.
My favorite part of Thanksgiving is the stuffing, with lots of onions and celery (from my garden) and lots and lots of sage. This year I made a batch with homemade bread and a batch with store bought crumbs. I make the broth to moisten it with the turkey neck, gizzard and heart, along with some celery, onions, sage, salt and pepper. (I forgot to mention that this year I added diced apples to the stuffing and some cider along with the turkey broth, next year I think I’ll add some walnuts).
Stuffing is my favorite part of Thanksgiving, I could get rid of all other dishes. And none of that stuff from inside the bird, I like mine baked in a casserole dish so it’s moist & gooey on the inside and crispy and caramelized on the outside. I quickly grow tired of all holiday leftovers except stuffing, which seems like there isn’t ever enough.
