Default Anyone canning turkey?

I'm thinking about getting the canner fired up tomorrow and putting some of this excess turkey in jars. Anyone else here doing this?

What leftover turkey?!?!

Seriously, that's a great idea. I didn't even think of that. We got a pretty small turkey this year, and last night's spicy turkey enchiladas took care of most of the leftovers but for next year that's something I should consider.

It never lasts that long around here. I am one hungry SOB and I have 2 young boys that can eat too.

Turkey is much better after Thanksgiving day. There is something magical that happens when you simmer sliced turkey in gravy and ladle it over toast or mashed potatoes. It is all gone as of tonight.

Around Maine we use the term "put up". For example you wouldn't say "I canned 12 jars of green beans", rather "I put up 12 jars of green beans".


Good luck with the canning. Maybe pickled turkey?

I made two large turkeys. We did make a large batch of turkey rice soup, but there's still turkey left.

We have company coming for Christmas, and my wife want's to make turkey then, too (it's the guest's request). So it got me thinking about packing turkey in water and using it like canned chicken later.

I love cooking this time of year, so having tons of leftovers in the fridge is pointless.

Sounds like a good plan.

I just cooked a 13lber for my wife, son, and I. We've been eating on it constantly. I think we're going to make a pot pie with some tomorrow, so that should take care of most of it.

I'm surprised to say, I haven't tired of it yet.

Deep freeze it?

That's what we do for the carcass, later turned into Turkey Soup.

I just think of potted meat, lost a bet and had to eat a can of that, ew.

Well This year I took home some leftovers so have about two servings of turkey to either make soup with or reheat straight up. However I do have two small turkeys in the freezer that I picked up for .69 cents a pound that may end up being canned, or one of those at least.

I did pick up some turkey necks to freeze, and I did use the left over leg bones I had from the bag I took home and four turkey necks last night..
To make some very rich turkey stock which was canned.

Does that count?

Maybe something along those lines:

Never done it with turkey, but the goos and duck canned this way is pure delight.

Will be canning turkey broth tomorrow morning - we used the bones and various vegetables to make the broth. We vacuum packed and froze our left over turkey meat in 8.5 ounce batches. I did buy an additional 2 - 22 pound turkeys that I will be smoking and canning in the next month or so.

2 jars of white, 1 jar of dark meat canned tonight. Just removed them from the canner. I just heard the lid on one of them pop, so I know they are sealing. I'm gonna wait a month and test. Wish me luck.
