Turkey Drumsticks with Plum Sauce

'Tis approaching the season for turkey, so here's something easy for your crock pot from Betty Crocker's  Slow Cooker Cookbook--enjoy!  Great with rice or noodles.

Turkey Drumsticks with Plum Sauce

4 turkey drumsticks (3lbs), skin removed
1/2 salt
1/4 t pepper
2/3 cup plum sauce
1/3 cup sliced green onions
1 T soy sauce
1 T cornstarch
1 T cold water

Sprinkle turkey with salt and pepper.  Place turkey in 5-6 qt. slow cooker.  Mix plum sauce, onion and soy sauce. Pour over turkey.

Cover and cook on low 8-10 hours, or until juice of turkey is no longer pink when centers of thickest pieces are cut.

Remove turkey from cooker. Cover with aluminum foil to keep warm.

Remove any fat from sauce.  Mix cornstarch and water; stir into sauce.

Cover and cook on high 15-20 minutes, or until sauce has thickened.  Cut turkey from drumsticks.  Serve with rice or noodles, and sauce.  Makes 4 servings.

I love turkey, but usually only cook it during late October and up through New Year's, while whole turkeys are plentiful.  But what about you? Do you cook turkey all year long (turkey breasts are always available), or only during the holidays?

Thanks for visiting and have a great week!

I'm actually not at all partial to turkey; I'll have the dark meat, but the light meat takes so long to chew it feels like a marathon.

Plum sauce, however, is a good idea for it....

I love turkey, but I prefer the dark meat! But I'm with you on the white meat--too dry and tough.

As a vegetarian, I'd say, no! LOL!!

But it's nice to keep certain things special on certain special occasions!

Take care

I was a vegetarian for a few years. I missed turkey at the holidays;(.

I love turkey all year long! It's such a nice treat :)

Just wanted to pop by and say thanks for the great guest post today :)

I'm drooling. Yes, I cook turkey all the time. Since we love turkey sandwiches and aren't crazy about the
processed meat in the deli, I get a boneless breast and bake it for an hour and viola!

Normally, I'm not a fan of turkey, either--but my son loves it. This recipe does sound delicious!

I make spicy turkey wings. They are huge compared to the chickens I get, but overall, not too shabby in taste.
