Turkey Treats

Hello Fellow Gelologists,

Happy Pre-Thanksgiving Monday. By now many of you have your birds marinating in brine, or de-thawing in the fridge.  Or maybe you're feeding a pair of turkey out your bedroom window like the couple I saw doing last week on my morning run.  I guess there's a troupe, or pack, or wait......  Wait, just looked it up... It's a rafter of wild turkeys and they're roaming around the streets of Cambridgeport.  

This situation inspired me to create an urban wild turkey treat.  Using these molds  I wanted to come up with some gel that was sweet and nutty with a bite to it. Something to gobble up but still relish. (wakka wakka wakka!)  

Anyone for a Turkey trot?

 The recipe...

Wild Turkey Treats
1 envelope Knox Gelatine
1/2 cup Wild Turkey Simple Syrup (recipe below)
1/4 cup cola
1/4 cup ginger ale
1 Tbsp maraschino cherry juice
1 Tbsp mandarin orange syrup
1 Tbsp apple cider
2 Tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp pomegranate concentrate

Wild Turkey Simple Syrup
1 cup water
1 cup sugar
4 oz Wild Turkey
1 tsp Amaretto
Heat the ingredients to just about boiling for 5 minutes.  Remove from the stove, cool, and store in a sterilized glass bottle in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.

These treats will compliment any Thanksgiving table!
