Harvest Feast

I made a feast from ingredients from our farm yesterday to accompany the Apple Cup.  Go Dawgs!

Above are the turkeys that we had butchered last Tuesday and the produce I pulled from our garden for this feast.  Below are the libations from our farm:  plum wine, quince wine and hard apple cider.

Below is the turkey all cooked up.  I brined it for three days and used Alice Waters’ recipe.  Not only did we use one of our turkeys but also our carrot, leek, thyme and rosemary.

Below is the rest of the feast.  In front is the Pecan Wild Rice Pilaf using our vegetable stock, onion, squash and apple.  Next is the Roasted Vegetables.  This used our carrots, beets, parsnips, turnips, sage and rosemary.  Next is the Gluten Free Dairy Free Green Bean Casserole using our green beans and sausage.  Next is the Olive Oil Mashed Potatoes with Make-Ahead Gravy.  This used our potatoes, garlic and turkey stock.

I managed not to take a pictures of the Brandied Pumpkin Pie which used our pumpkin and eggs and the Toasted Pecan and Honey Torte (I substituted pecan for the hazelnuts) which also used our eggs and pecans from Sunnyland Farms.

It was a great feast and an amazing game.  Go Dawgs!!!

    Impressive! I’m interested in the recipe for olive oil mashed potatoes, but the link doesn’t seem to be valid. Can you check?
