What happens when you get iced in on a ridge top?
For me, I can log into work and continue to do my job from home.
My husband made great use of time by using the boiled down
the turkey carcass (last night) and today pressure canned enough
turkey stock to keep us cooking for the rest of the year.
Not only did we get 10 quarts of stock but boiled down
enough of the dark meat to make four pounds of turkey
which we vacuum sealed for the freezer.
It will be great for pot pies, sandwiches,
stews or just about anything else you would make from turkey.
My daughter won a 25 lb turkey at the church meat shoot
so we had it for Thanksgiving and divided up the white meat
among three households. No one wanted the dark meat,
which is my husband's favorite. I'm not that fond of it on the bone
but this turns out more like a pulled turkey so it's all tender.
The ice was quite a surprise. The forecast called for it to go South
but something caused it to turn leaving a coating of ice and
freezing rain on the area roadways. Normally there is some
pre treatment but even the highway department was caught
off guard. Our subdivision was out of salt, they are not even
stocked at the farm supply stores yet so there was no going down
in my car. A tractor trailer rollover shut the highway down earlier
(on my route of course) so I decided it was a work from home day !
All is melted now and we have found a salt supply for the next time.
