How best to cook turkey jelly

In order for the jelly to freeze exactly, you need to use parts of the carcass with the largest amount of bone and connective tissue. For example: necks, shins, small segments from wings and even stomachs.

High temperatures can disrupt the gelling processes, so the broth should be cooked at a minimum heat.

Pour water in such a way that the liquid covers the meat products by about two phalanges of the fingers.

You need to salt the broth for jelly a little more than you usually salt the soup.

Jellied meat is best combined with mustard, horseradish and even wasabi left over from the last time you ordered delivery rolls.

You can combine turkey meat with chicken meat. Of chicken offal, not only necks and drumsticks are suitable for jelly, but you can also add delicious scallops, paws and even heads to the broth – very cheap, but rich in connective tissue. Just at the stage of straining the broth, remove the heads and paws from it, then all the household will be satisfied with this dense, fatty and very tender jellied meat.
