      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

gravy question

Recommended Posts

When I make my turkey I brine it over night. The recipe I use says the drippings should not be used for gravy, because it will come out really salty. Does anyone know of a good recipe for gravy? Maybe starting with broth. I don't eat alot of gravy but the family does. This is my year to have Turkey day at my house and I am determined to have gravy for them. The obvious answer is to bake the bird traditionally but I won't do that. My recipe comes out so moist and has the best flavor I've ever had. (sorry mom)

Thanks, Jeremy

I always cook my turkey on the Weber using the rotisserie kit and like you I always brine my turkey. I put a tin foil drip tray under the turkey and put 2 cans of Swanson's chicken broth in the pan. I don't think that the brine will cause it to be salty but is there to aid in getting more moisture into the meat so it stay moist while cooking.

I typically make a cider-brined turkey when I host Thanksgiving. The recipe has a Savory Herb Gravy that goes along with it. I haven't made it, since that is one thing I have never mastered, but here is the recipe. (Cooking Light, November 2004) It says to reserve pan drippings for the gravy in the recipe for the turkey. You can make this through step 1 and put in the refridgerator until the next day to help save time.

Savory Herb Gravy

2 teaspoons vegetable oil

Reserved turkey neck and giblets

4 cups water

6 black peppercorns

4 parsley sprigs

2 thyme sprigs

1 yellow onion, unpeeled and quartered

1 carrot, cut into 2 inch pieces

1 celery stalk, cut into 2 inch pieces

1 bay leaf

Reserved turkey drippings

3 tablespoons all-purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Step 1. Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add turkey neck and giblets; cook 5 minutes, browning on all sides. Add water and next 7 ingredients (through bay leaf); bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer until liquid is reduced to about 2 1/2 cups (about 1 hour). Strain through a collander over a bowl, reserving cooking liquid and turkey neck. Discard remaining solids. Chill cooking liquid completely. Skim fat from surface and discard. Remove meat from neck; finely chop meat. Discard neck bone. Add neck meat to cooking liquid.

Step 2. Strain the reserved turkey drippings through a colander over a shallow bowl; discard solids. Place strained drippings in freezer for 20 minutes. Skim fat from surface; discard.

Step 3. Place flour in a medium saucepan; add 1/4 cup cooking liquid, stirring with a whisk until smooth. Add remaining cooking liquid, turkey drippings, salt, and pepper; bring to a boil, stirring frequently. Reduce heat; simmer 5 minutes or until slightly thickened. Yield: 2 1/2 cups

I saw this one on TV and it looked really good:

Turkey Gravy

Ingredients

* 5 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

* 1 large, smoked turkey wing or 2 small ones

* 1 medium onion, quartered

* 2 carrots, chopped

* 1 ribs celery, chopped

* 1 head garlic, split through the equator

* 4 stems fresh sage

* 4 sprigs fresh thyme

* 6 parsley stems

* 1 1/2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

* 6 cups chicken stock

* Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

Directions

(you could use dried herbs instead, just adjust amount to taste. You know those TV chefs and fresh herbs.)

(The wing he had looked really big.)

Heat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Heat 3 tablespoons olive oil in a large stock pot over medium-high heat. Add the wing, onion, carrots, celery, garlic, and herbs, and cook for 5 minutes. Place in the oven and roast for 30 minutes. Remove from the oven and place over medium heat. Remove the wing and set aside. Add the flour and let cook for about 1 minute. Add the stock and simmer until it has reduced by about 1/4, about 15 minutes. Strain the sauce and adjust the seasoning with salt and pepper.

    • I just wanted to share some of my experiments with solar power and solar heat on my fish house. It's 8x12 with one 100 watt solar panel and a custom made 4x7 active solar heating panel on the back. It puts out some incredible heat for free, up to 110F. 
    • It's the cooking forum, someone asked about your bedtime eating habits. Not sure how that's not food/ cooking related. You didn't derail nuttin but maybe rundave can enlighten us.
    • After today's drubbing, I fully expect the Goph's to take the Axe and crush Wisconsin's heart next week. Seriously. Why? Because MN teams have a knack for beating the best and losing to the worst.
    • And I didn't mean to derail this thread, somebody asked about my bedtime eating habits. I view message boards like real life conversations, and when do conversations truly stay on topic 100% of the time? And speaking of, seemingly all online forums have seen a decline in participation in the last couple of years, it's not just here at HSO. Can't truly put my finger on the reason why, but it is what it is. The world is continually changing. Sorry that I can't contribute much here in the cooking forum, that's what women are for. LOL Kidding ladies, calm your teats down.
    • I will look into that.  Thank you
    • I keep it on and only fish Upper Red Lake.

    • Does anyone know of a program where a person can create a calendar for your home computer?  What I would like for it to do is be your wallpaper and change automatically at the beginning of each month.
