Wild Turkey

Basting the turkey with bear grease

In William Penn’s account of the Lenape, he wrote:   We sweat and toil to live; their pleasure feeds them, I mean, their Hunting, Fishing and Fowling…  The weekend of the Green Corn Festival at Phillipsburg Manor, I presented all three.  The first day I roasted eel, the second I roasted wild turkey.  In the picture to the left, I am using a gourd containing the fat of a bear and keeping the turkey moist for eating.

Please visit my website at  The class page has a new hearth cooking class posted.
