Total Time:
Approx. 12 hours
Servings:
2

Turkey Leg:

- 2 Turkey leg, 1 per person
- Sage, minced, fresh preferred
- Thyme Salt, can substitute fresh minced Thyme and Salt or make your own Thyme Salt
- Duck Gravy, consisting of duck stock, garlic, pultry seasoning, and butter, for confit

Instructions;

  1. Prepare your turkey legs by drying them with paper towels or a tea towel. Remember, you don't need to rinse poultry.
  2. Mix the sage and thyme salt in a small bowl and pat the mixture onto the turkey legs. Put all the legs in a large dish or on a platter, cover lightly with foil or plastic, and place in the fridge to cure overnight.
  3. The next day, bring your duck fat to a low simmer in a large pan or pot with a lid. Rinse the salt mixture off the legs and dry off with paper towels or a tea towel. Place the turkey legs in the duck fat and let simmer, covered, for 3-4 hours or until the turkey nearly falls off the bone. (This process is called a confit!)
