I didn't know there was such a thing, but I suppose that means pastured turkey.  I bought two turkey legs and a thigh (huge!) at Whole Foods and roasted them in the oven for dinner.  I must have never tried grass-fed turkey before because this was so flavorful and delicious and sweet, it was almost like eating roast duckling (which is a black dot avoid for me now on SWAMI, alas), an entirely different ball park from the turkey I've had in the past.  I had some of the thigh meat, and DH had a leg, but I think his was a bit tougher than mine - it may have needed less cooking time.  I don't have a meat thermometer anymore, it walked away, so I just estimated cooking time.  The thigh would have been plenty for the two of us to share.  I will definitely be doing that again, with some kind of sweet/savory berry relish on the side.  Yum!  Highly recommend!

It sounds good.  It's great when you can find a good source of protein, isn't it.

It was probably fed "Medical Marijuana".

I can't believe the difference in the flavor.  Meaning it actually HAS flavor.  Sometimes turkey has a metallic taste to me, but this was sweet.  And a little bit went a long way in terms of satisfaction.  No cravings.  Very odd.  Who knew!     (Dr. D. knows, duh!  He says, "eat grass fed").

O in Virginia,
Grass-fed turkey?  That sounds great, I need to get more turkey in my diet.  I'll try it with the high fructose corn syrup free cranberry relish I found at Whole Foods.  Oh, I bet the juices would make a yummy gravy .

Kathleen, I didn't make gravy, but I bet it would make terrific soup, too, especially the bones.  Very *medicinal*.

It was very tasty indeed.  I was very pleasantly surprised.  I didn't even do anything special - just gave it a rubbing of ghee, sea salt, and some red pepper, and popped it in the oven (on a rack in a pan) to roast until the skin got crispy.  It was nice that they had the parts for sale instead of the whole thing, as it's only the two of us plus one spoiled dog.    I have roasted duckling at home before for DH and myself, but this was every bit as good.

We used to raise turkeys in a pasture for 3 or 4 years. They taste even better when they haven't been frozen. They can put up a fight when you catch them though.

Yes a pretty good one. When we decided it was time for Brooster the gobbler to go I ended up with a bruise on my bicep from elbow to shoulder. He did not "go gently into the night". That was probably 20 years ago though.

You are braver than I!     Geese can be pretty aggressive.  I'm not sure I'd want a run-in with a turkey.  I'd probably be running the other way, the turkey chasing me!
