If you've been reading lately, you know I've started to incorporate SOLE food into my cooking plans. I've been inspired by many great blogs* and am really excited to share my journey with you. Some of the things I've been including lately are homemade broths, which I've done often in the past. For the first time this past week, I made a broth from the parts after I broke down a great organic whole turkey breast that included the wings. I was wary about this, but it was so much easier than I expected. I used the indispensable Fannie Farmer Cookbook (affiliate alert!- but you can get this in many libraries also :) Basically you just wiggle the wings with your knife in the joint, until they break off. Then, it's just a matter of "carving" the breasts of the bones.
Here's the finished breasts (far right) and some smaller cutlets (middle.) I made the stock with the remainder, and took the wings and leftover meat out early (so they wouldn't be overdone) to make "chicken" salad with- DH loves it for lunch.
