We just cooked the last of our turkeys. Since I did cooking duty, I don't think I'll really be able to talk about how it tasted until tomorrow, my taste buds are exhausted! But this ol' boy had an absolute ton of fat in his chest area. He was a midget white and was slaughtered when he was about 10 months old. He did not seem obese in life or when we slaughtered him, but when we went to slice him he had an area that was just pure fat. I remember thinking his chest was nicely filled out, but unfortunately it wasn't meat! I've never seen anything like it and I've eaten a lot of turkeys in my life (although only a handful have been home-grown.) When I was preparing him, I did not notice any abundance of yellow fat. He free ranged on pasture and for the last couple of months was offered the chickens' food free-choice. (He started his life on turkey starter then grower, then it seemed like the turkey were all stealing chicken food and the chickens were all stealing turkey food, and you know how it goes.) Is this a common occurrence? Like, two giant handfuls worth of fat under the skin by the breastbone? If not, what should I do differently next time?
