Herbed Turkey Two Ways
The turkey legs can be braised up to two days ahead. Refrigerate the legs and strained braising liquid separately.
If you aren't comfortable cutting up a turkey, you can prepare this recipe using a 7-pound turkey breast on the bone, plus 5 pounds of turkey drumsticks and/or thighs.
The succulence of this turkey makes it an ideal partner for a ripe, berry-rich Pinot Noir. Bi-Rite's local focus would point toward one from Sonoma's Russian River Valley.
