  • Bacon Wrapped Turkey With Pear Cider Gravy

    Holy moly this sounds good. Other than the flour and the sugar in the cider, nicely Primal as well. (Of course, when I read "vegetable oil" my primal mind substitutes "olive oil or fat of choice.")

    Legs and wings, I'd wrap the outside, but the breast would absorb bacony goodness if the bacon was under the skin. Basting flavors skin, not meat.

      Ooh, interesting idea, getting the bacon underneath the skin.

        The bacon is only there to save the turkey from drying out - you can massage room temperature butter under the skin for the same effect.
        Pear cider? Yeah, nice ... simmer a pear in water until soft, remove, core, mash and drop into cider, pour over cook on for a short while ... basting every so often. I wouldn't serve it out with that gravy - too sweet, just basted.
