Turkey Drumsticks in the Crock Pot

READY IN: 9hrs 5mins
Recipe by Sandy in Oklahoma

The grocery here often has fresh turkey legs and they're very inexpensive. I make this recipe using 4 or 6, however many happen to be in the package. I then take the meat off the bone and use it in recipes that call for cooked chicken or turkey.

First off, don't cook as long as recipe calls for, the turkey will be dried out. I wish I'd cooked it about 5 hours as I tasted it at that point & it was moist & lovely, falling off the bone but by the time my honey got home (about 7 hours cook time) it was dried out & not very good. I did use cooking sherry instead of water & the flavor at first tasting was lovely, would have been wonderful had I served it after 5 hours on low so I'll give it 4 stars & remember to cook it 4 or 5 hours next time.
