In addition to using the carcass and leftover meat, this recipe  tidily utilizes the remainder of your Thanksgiving leftovers: Gravy serves as a viscous demi-glace, for example, while leftover mashed potatoes thickens the brew.

    I took the Wild Rice and Fennel Dressing to our family meal, along with my Weber-grill roasted turkey ( the best way to cook a turkey, even if you are out in the snow to check it ), because I can no longer have flour-based food, and people loved it! I had two requests for copies of the recipe. And I’m glad to know I wasn’t the only one cooking the carcass yesterday. I checked the crock-pot, knitted, checked the crock-pot, napped, watched the snow, called old friends — and finally cleaned the bones, and made a turkey and vegetable stew topped with gluten-free dumplings. A bowlful of yummy for my tummy! Thank you for all of your good recipes, and Happy Holidays to you.

      Yummy, yummy, Michelle! Gluten-free dumplings – would love that recipe. I’m glad you like the wild rice fennel recipe – I’ve been making it for years and I agree with grilling turkey on the Webber; I did that many years ago and it still stands out as the best bird I’ve ever made. Thanks for your sweet comment! Peggy

    I have so enjoyed many of your recipes posted in the Ann Arbor paper; always looked forward to them. Today I will be making your turkey soup (we have pretty much picked the carcass over)……will let simmer while decorating the Christmas tree.
    I also made your “make ahead gravy”, adding the turkey drippings before serving; how wonderfully easy that was and delicious. I was happy! Thank you.
