I quite like turkey, although I have so many memories of overdoses of the stuff at Christmas, all dried up .

But it simply isn't available here except as cold cuts, or ready cooked/frozen and full of preservatives and additives. Or, I found in the organic section of a supermarket the other day, frozen and un-mucked-about-with but costing..... SG$274 each! That's about US$200!

So I'm sorry, but we'll have to go without turkey until we get back to the UK. Shame.

I know a couple of families in Crossville too.  Isn't it funny?  Seems like such an unlikely place.

I yes I don't use tomato sauce as an A so we make what we call Un-tomato sauce. It tastes just like tomato sauce and suits the propose very well.


I use tomato sauce...MMMoooahahahahaha   It's dotted for me.

(the evil laugh was because I still feel like it's a total avoid)

I am a lazy cook (city girl at heart)so I do a Quick untomato sauce using 2 cans in sliced carrots, 1/2 can sliced beets, both drained then add my spices in the blender and it makes a qt in a jiffy. If I had to steam carrots and beets and fix it that way even though it is healthier I would not fix it. I missed pizza and all those things until I figured out how to have them and enjoy the taste. Now I hardly ever have them anymore. A lot of this is in our heads. I have just ordered 100% artichoke pasta from the food club I belong to. It is listed as a super-beneficial for me even though it is made from Jerusalem artichokes which are an avoid (on the teacher diet so many things are like the B diet). I fixed the turkey meatloaf at my cooking class today and it was a hit. I also fixed rutabaga and turnips two different ways. The rutabaga is sweet and the turnip has a bit of a twang to it so I put them together and they equaled out very well. I did the equal of mashed potatoes with them only didn't add any type of liquid (pretty good)and a dish of scalloped "unpotatoes" using the rutabaga and a turnip. Not to bad but need a little work.
I only have myself to cook for also so I understand. I also am gluten sensitive and I always liked pasta dishes so I have found a couple non gluten pastas that aren't to bad. I am learning to love new things and forget about some of the old.

Ribbit what are the family names of those here in Crossville? Are you coming to our mini conference in Oct with Dr. D speaking to us? Would like to meet you if you come. I love your motto.
My SWAMI gave me tomato sauce but the teacher has a black dot so I am saving it for now, Mayflower. Can't hardly wait.

I do turkey several different ways, although as a Warrior, I don't eat very much turkey anymore - it is only neutral...

Roasted whole with several onions quartered and put some in the body cavity and the craw opening and the rest around the outside of the turkey in the roaster...  Sprinkle on some compliant spicing, usually an Italian mix and some garlic (either fresh cloves or powder), add a small amount of water to keep it from scorching at the start and baking, covered for about 15 minutes per pound @ 325 F.

Buy pre-formed turkey burgers and grill them with compliant spices, although we don't do this much due to the additives.

Use ground 100% turkey instead of ground beef in No Tomato spaghetti sauce on rice pasta.

We really like to put cranberry sauce on turkey, whether we're eating it on the plate or in a sandwich.

Okay your quicky version of the untomato sauce I can get behind. I might have to try an eggplant parmesan or a moussaka using it. Hope you can adapt the cheesecake to fit your needs. I didn't realize untill I started typing it up that the orange flavor is more prominent. Lemon zest ought to subsitute well if you can't have orange. I'm not supposed to on the GTD. I haven't made this in a long time as it is time comsuming and more traditional cheesecakes like my Emerill's New Orleans or the Pumpkin Cranberry Swirl were more popular.

Here is a great and easy cranbery relish to go with the turkey.
Cranberry/Pineapple Relish
1 cup water
1 cup raw sugar (or 1/2 cup agave)
1 pkg. cranberries (I buy bags in the fall and freeze)
1 cup crushed pineapple, drained
Cook water, sugar and cranberries until cranberries are soft and look like a thick sauce. Add pineapple and stir. Pour into a container and let cool.
Very good and keeps well in the refrigerator.

Thanks for the recipe Dpcat, got the oregano growing right outside the door. I've got a recipe for cranberry chutney but the barbarians I'm related to won't eat cranberry unless it still has the can rings on it.I put a tablespoon or brandy, nuts, cardomom and golden raisens in it.

Oh yes the rings.. my family likes those too! They eat it then stumble away from the table in a corn syrup stupor.
No matter how delicious I make those fresh cranberries they always ask for those other ones.
I wonder why they don't make the canned cranberry sauce with a turkey imprinted on it from the can instead?

I also make Italian Turkey Sausage that I use in pizza, spaghetti, scrambled eggs, chili or anything else it will spice up a meal. You start with a pound of ground turkey and loose fry it in some olive oil, add 1 1/2 tsp sea salt, 3 tsp fennel seed, 1/2 tsp coriander, 1 tsp oregano, 1/4 tsp garlic powder, 1/4 tsp caraway seed, 1 T. parsley and 1/8 tsp basil. I freeze in 3/4 to 1 cup portions and use when needed. I yes I don't use tomato sauce as an A so we make what we call Un-tomato sauce. It tastes just like tomato sauce and suits the propose very well.


If you are so inclined, add both recipes to the database.  


It is not my responsibility to convince anyone of anything.

Lola, Thank you so much. I just went to the food club website to print off the ingredients for the Artichoke pasta and there it was Durum wheat as the first ingredient. I will cancel that order as it isn't final until this next weekend. Don't want that!! Whew--close call. The brand by the way was Deboles. All their pasta has wheat as I just looked.

Yes Drea I would be happy to add my recipes to the database. In my class yesterday I made a scalloped potato type dish with rudabaga and turnip instead of potatoes. It was good. I also did mashed rudabaga and turnip with ghee and sea salt to go with the turkey meatloaf and gravy. In case no one has thought of that I will include those recipes also.

We are roasting a turkey breast to celebrate the first day of spring tomorrow (Thursday the 20th) and using the last of the frozen cranberries to make relish to go with it. Once the carcass has been picked over it's going into the slow cooker with some backs, necks and wings to make a big batch of stock, since I'm almost out. I'll use half of that to make turkey vegetable soup.

GCG, that recipe for chutney sounds awesome! Thanks for sharing it

I made Turkey soup.. and pureed it sort of like baby food. Then I added it to my pea soup. DD the Gatherer won't eat Turkey soup, so I hid it in the pea soup.  Sometimes i feel so smart.

Brighid, that wasn't the whole recipe it also has orange zest. When I have time to run down the book I'll post it, but that will be sunday at the earliest. I got a chance to finish a work contract early but it will mean compressing 4 weeks of paper work into 2. I typed on the puter so much today I think my fingers are about to fall off.

Okay GCG. I'd have to switch it to lemon zest anyway, orange is a no-no for Os The turkey turned out really nicely, I roasted it breast-down and the meat was moist and tender. Stuffed the cavity with fresh lemon quarters and thyme, the au jus gravy was delicious! What we didn't use at dinner got added to the stock pot. We now have a quart of lovely brown stock in the freezer and two quarts of turkey vegetable soup in the fridge, as well as plenty of leftover meat and cranberry relish. Good pickin's for the weekend! I love turkey!

Okay I thought I would post my other 2 recipes from my family cookbook before this thread shuffled off. Keep in mind that the published date was 2001 so it hasn't been adapted for any genotype or bloodtype.

Cranberry Orange Chutney

1 pound fresh or frozen cranberries
1/2 cup brown sugar(agave nectar maybe1/4 cup?)
1/2 cup golden raisens
1/2 cup dried apricots, diced
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon cardomom(mandatory)
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
3 tablespoons orange zest
2 tablespoons brandy(recommended but not mandatory)

Combine water(small amount) and sugar and bring to a boil, add berries and bring to a boil for 2 minutes while adding remaining ingredients. Reduce heat and simmer for 3 minutes, Cool and refrigerate. Makes about 3 cups. Sorry I was wrong about the nuts but feel free to try them.

Flounder Baked with Red Sauce

4 large Flounder filets(about 1 and 1/2 pounds or 2 cleaned and headless flounder)
1 1/2 teaspoons of salt
1/2 cup minced shallots or green onions
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon flour
2 ripe, peeled and seeded tomatos chopped fine
1/2 teaspoon basil, oregano or both
1 teaspoon red wine vinegar
1/8 teaspoon black pepper

Preheat oven to 350F
Cut enough pieces of aluminum foil or parchment paper to wrap each piece individually. Lay a filet on each  and sprinkle the filets with 1 teaspoon salt. Saute shallots or green onion in butter at moderate heat 3 to 5 minutes, Sprinkle in flour and other ingredients, and cook on low heat for another 3 to 5 minutes. Put sauce on flounder and wrap them up. Bake 30 to 40 minutes dependeding on wither it was fillets or whole fish.

My grandmothers molasses cake, teacakes, or cookies or in there also(they made their own molasses and it was the most commonly used sweetner) but they all have white flour in them.
