I have Turkey hearts that I need to cook tonight.
Braise? In what? How long?
Fry and slice? How long? Herbs?
What can I do with them?
Thanks guys, Oana
Oooohhh ... that sounds wonderful! It's amazing what one can overlook. I am a hot sauce junkie and not for one second did it cross my mind for Turkey hearts. scunge, thank you! :):) I will place another order from the farm for the hearts and serve it up your style. SO looking forward to it :).
I sometimes fry and slice them, serve on crackers with some cream cheese as an hor devour or as an ingredient in a salad or mixed into a fried rice dish. I also sometimes braise them in a bit of chicken broth and white wine. I rarely offer them to guests unless I know for certain that they'll be popular with the group - offal isn't always well received.
When I get them as part of the package with a turkey I usually include them with all the other trimmings in a pot of chicken stock where they're boiled for a while and them pureed and added to the final collection of flavorful juices from which I make a gravy that I strain prior to serving.
If you like them you can cook them up, puree them and use them in a Turkey Heart Salad Sandwich, not unlike you might use a liver pate or a tuna salad.
