Comments: 1



  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 apple, cored but not peeled, finely chopped
  • 1 green pepper, seeded and finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons curry powder
  • 2 cups turkey or chicken broth
  • Cooked turkey wings, disjointed
  • Meat from cooked turkey legs and thighs, cut into pieces
  • Leftover turkey gravy
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • ½ cup seedless white grapes


Sauté the onion in the butter till soft. Add the apple and green pepper and cook till tender. Mix in the curry powder and cook for a few minutes to remove the raw taste. Pour in the broth and simmer for 10 minutes.

Add the turkey pieces and cook until they are heated through. Mix in any leftover turkey gravy. Season to taste and mix in the grapes. Serve with steamed rice, chutney, chopped salted peanuts, thinly sliced cucumbers dressed with oil and vinegar, and baked bananas. Beer is good with this.

    This recipe is virtually identical to one my mother used to use with leftover lamb roast when I was a child 60 years ago. It's quick, easy and delicious. However, with all due respect to Mr. Beard, use raisins instead of grapes. The sauce needs the depth and sweetness that raisins bring.
