Turkey carcass terrine

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Smoked a 15lbs turkey for the Canadian Thanksgiving.

As usual I removed meat from the carcass while still warm and vacpac for freezing.

Instead of saving the bones for soup I decided to try a terrine. I am on a terrine streak.

I left some meat on bones here and there. Got a big pot full.

Whole pepper and juniper berries

Bay leaves

Whole cloves of garlic not pictured.

Cooked for about 3.5h, topped up the water a few times. Ended up with little than 1L liquid.

Will see tonight if it holds together.

Here it is

Used the 4 pickles I had in the fridge for some contrast. They feel nice "embedded" in the terrine.

Great way to get the good stuff from the bones without taking a lot of space with a pot of soup.

Will do this again with bony leftovers. Thinking lamb....

Is not as stiff as pork based jelly. But in thick slices holds up well.

Interesting,but I'll stick to my turkey leftovers in gravy over rice.

This is made from the bones after picking meat (without going nazi on it). You can have your cake and eat it too.

Normally, I would take the stuffing out and throw away the bird. Obviously I don't care for turkey.


But.....yours is a dish that I would certainly try.


Looks good!


Good luck and good smoking.

This is brilliant and must be tried. Points for the idea!
