Heritage turkeys? Any body tried them and where can I get in southeastern CT or New Haven, Middletown areas?
I am about to go to my local purveyor of turkeys and place my order tomorrow or Wed.
I began to think about some articles I had read on heritage turkeys and made me think of trying them.
Anyone know where to score one this year in the southeastern Connecticut region - willing to venture over to New Haven or Middletown as well
Also - anyone out here have any experience in cooking and eating a heritage turkey?
For the past few years, we've done heritage turkeys - love them. A lot of people brine them, we don't. We just roast them like a garden variety turkey, baste often, keep an eye on it. The farmer I used is going exclusively with Connecticut Farm Fresh Express this year - here's their website:
Just FYI, last year I think I paid $7/lb - don't know what this year's price is.
Pipenta has been to Ekonk Farms in Sterling, where they do heritage birds also. See here ....
