This  Is Not A Pretty Picture……….just a darn tasty and satisfying dish 🙂
Just as any other food blogger who is making big efforts to produce a popular food blog, I usually strive to present my food as “pretty” as possible (Food Porn anybody?)
But, today I was not interested in that at all. Instead, I was rather hoping that the essence of this meal shines through to my readers, by showing it as natural as possible, emphasizing it as the great comfort food it actually was. This meal was so tasty and satisfying, additional “fru fru” would just have distracted from its simplicity and down to earth flavors and textures.
So, without further ado, here it is –

  1. Hi Anneli,
    It’s not raw at all, it’s been simmered for nearly two hours 🙂
    When you brine turkey leg (and most other meats), you add a small amount of “sodium nitrite”, which turns the meat reddish when cooked. (That’s how corned beef gets its pretty color).
    However, you can omit this, as I often do, but the result is a very gray-colored meat which would not be successful commercially 🙂
    And there you have it………
    Cheers !
