Quoted from ABJoe

This way they have freedom to change what is added at a moments notice without changing the packaging...


If that's the case, then how can we be sure that each batch we buy has the ingredient they put on the label? I'm just venting; I don't expect an answer...if I'm buying ground turkey for my own consumption, I'll buy ground turkey thigh from Whole Foods...and the dogs get their meals from a local fresh raw dog food company, so we are all covered. Just sayin'.


It is not my responsibility to convince anyone of anything.

I hear you.  We use it until it bothers us, then look for other sources...  Ultimately, we have to do the best we can with what is available.

After reading your following post,

Quoted from ABJoe
Where I live, most of the whole turkey or turkey pieces sold have a salt solution added...
I started to worry about the quality of the salt used in the slaughterhouses to kosher the beef/turkey meats. All kosher meats marketed in Israel are already salted and ready to cook. They are also very salty. I asked my learned butcher about this, and he assured me that no way any other thing is added there to the fresh meats in the koshering process but salt. The trouble is that you can't get here kosher meat which has not undergone salting. I'd rather buy unsalted meat and salt it at home like we used to do 55-60 years ago, with my own coarse atlantic salt... And then remove the fat and ground it myself for burgers...

As you say,

I've just talked to my WN (wonderful nephew, wunderbare Neffe), and he thinks that he bought somewhere - he can't remember exactly when and where -  kosher but not yet salted meat. So this is still under investigation.

Quoted from Averno
My trusty old Cuisinart food processor works well for shredding lamb and turkey into a nearly "ground" state. Close enough for burgers.
Have just used my Kenwood multipro sense food processor for the first time to mince diced turkey and it did an excellent job.

Much better than what I received at the butcher's, and I trimmed the fat/connective tissue by myself. It's a lot of work, but apparently I have more time for this than the butcher, so the result is more satisfactory by far.
