Success

Remember my turkey experiment? OMG, it was wonderful! I was surprised how much the turkey browned up in the crock pot, then I put it under a low broiler for about five minutes and the skin was perfectly crisp.



I ended up with four cups of stock after I skimmed off the fat. I made gravy with some and froze the rest. I should also note that when I was tasting the gravy I realized I'd forgotten to season the breast with some thyme before cooking, so I added some directly to the gravy which worked out just fine. All in all it was delicious.

It sounds like a great way to do it. What size turkey did you use?

My stomach is growling.

I have one that lives under the cabinet (a crockpot--- not a turkey) and it might like to see the light of day on occasion. Hmmm. Any idea what temperatures are meant by "low" and "high"?

I have always wondered what turkey would be like done in the CP. I am definitely going to give this one a try!

How long did it cook in the crock pot? It looks delicious!

This sounds like cooking. What?!? You raise smart kids and cook? And here I thought we could be friends...... Sigh. :)

Oh yum. I do love turkey with the perfectly crisp skin.

BTW, I tagged you for a photo meme.
