2 pastured turkey thighs (season with sea salt, black pepper, cumin and cayenne)
3-4 tablespoons peanut oil (or other high smoke point oil; coconut, lard, schmaltz)
3 cups water (turkey stock or chicken stock)
3 cups white wine
1 bay leaf
1 teaspoon dried rosemary
2 teaspoons dried sage
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1 onion (peeled and chopped)
2-3 carrots (chopped)
1 rutabaga (cut into 1 inch pieces)
4 garlic cloves (peeled and minced)
1 teaspoon real salt
black pepper to taste
1. Put fat/oil into a deep frying pan on medium heat. When oil begins shimmering (getting wavy), put two turkey thighs into the pan and lightly brown on each side (4-5 minutes). Discard excess oil.
2. Add water, wine, and bay leaf into the pan with the seared turkey thighs and bring to a boil.
3. Cover and lower heat to simmer for 1 hour and 15 minutes. Turn turkey thighs at least one time during that cooking time.
4. Add herbs, onions, carrots, rutabaga and garlic, plus sea salt and black pepper. Adjust salt and pepper to taste.
5. Cover and continue cooking until almost all the liquid is gone (45 minutes). Save some liquid to use for gravy.
6. Plate braised turkey and winter roots. Spoon a little gravy from the pan and garnish with fresh parsley.

I love to travel. I have a subscription to Travel & Leisure purely to read about locations I will one day visit. And I believe it is so important to show the world to our children. With that being said, we don’t often leave the state. So, we tr...
This recipe is so simple and so good. It's a favorite on a busy weeknight when I don't have a lot of time to prepare. It works as a side dish or an entree -- I like it as is, while my husband loves it with leftover chicken and rice mixed in. The juic...
This recipe is inspired by Dr. Joel Fuhrman, who recommends eating Greens, Beans, Onions, Mushrooms, Berries, and Seeds every day (G-BOMBS). The saute includes many of those. I love to make it for dinner and have leftovers the next day for lunch. I s...
