Marie's Turkey Osso Bucco

"A less expensive but equally as rich-tasting slow-cooker version of the traditional Osso Bucco. Do NOT use boneless turkey meat as the dark meat of the leg and thigh as well as the bones contribute greatly to the taste of the finished product. Osso Bucco is tradionally served over Risotto Milanese and this is wonderful that way; but it's just as good over saffron or plain white rice. Leftovers seldon occur, when they do...they are even tastier then the first day. This dish freezes superbly!"

RECIPE MADE WITH LOVE BY

"My Public Name: Callinectes Sapidus is the official name of the blue crab (Callinectes sapidus, from the Greek calli="beautiful", nectes="swimmer", and Latin sapidus="savory") It is the Maryland State Crustacean and the subject of an extensive local and national fishery. It is found at its best in the Chesapeake Bay, North America's largest estuary and the world's third largest. I live in Baltimore, Maryland and have been a nurse for 36 years. I've worked in nearly every specialty there is, but spent the most time in the OR which I loved. My current field is a little less strenuous: Health Care Informatics (where old nurses go to die) and I enjoy it immensely. I have 2 children: an adult human son and an 4 year old Airedale Terrier named Jack who consumes most of my attention. My passions are writing fiction which is what I do for fun, when Jack permits me, classical music and especially opera. I am a creature of habit so I guess my biggest pet peeve is people who don't put things back where and how they found them."

    This is really delicious. Instead of doing it in the crockpot, I cooked it in the oven at 400 degrees F for 2 hours. The meat was nice and tender; came right off the bones. The tweaks I made were minor: a little less garlic, a little more thyme, white wine instead of red and since I used turkey thighs, I stuffed a slice of pancetta between the meat and the skin before putting the dish into the oven to cook. It was delicious served with brown rice. I have enough left for a second meal. Can't wait to taste the leftovers.

    I used 4 turkey legs (3 ½ lbs.) and it took 8 hours on high. This was a bit time consuming taking the skin off the legs and dicing all the veggies; oh but well worth it. Because the cooking time was so much longer than I had planed for, I reheated it the next day (which probably made it even better) and served over egg noodles. YUMM!
