Slow Roasted Turkey Wings Teaser
With Orange Honey dressing...spiced up with minced
jalopeno. A sure appetite teaser!

A Cucumber Tomato Salsa
Served with the turkey wings.
 Ever wondered what to do with that large package of "TURKEY WINGS"?  It cost next to nothing that I have to blink twice to make sure the $ amount is what it says. Your first thought would be to make a good stock out of it. Well, I had an idea--- what if I slow roast it as a wonderful appetite teaser for dinner?! goes my "aha moment"....... so here we are......

3 cut up turkey wings (there are 4 humongous turkey wings in the package -bones were already broken to make it easier to cut up).
The Marinade for the Turkey
Amazing dry rub - see previous posting - you must have a mixture of this in the jar by now - that is if you follow my blog regularly.
1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup of buttermilk
Rub each piece with olive oil and season generously with the amazing dry rub.
Preheat oven to 300 F
Place each piece on a roasting rack and slowly roast for 2 to 2-1/2 hrs. until tender and golden.
Set aside and make the dressing.

A juice of one fresh orange
A zest of one orange
3-4 tablespoons of good honey (according to desired sweetness)
1-2 drops of cider vinegar - and I mean a "drop".
2 teaspoons of dijon mustard
1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil
1 minced jalopeno (seeds and membrane removed) I just removed the seeds and left the membranes intact for a little kick.
Mix thoroughly in a bowl and drizzle over the turkey wings.
Simply, simply delicious!

1 medium size cuke (English cucumber) -if you are using the regular cucumber, remove the seeds and cut into small cubes.
1/2 quart of grape tomatoes cut in half
1 cup of chopped cilantro
2 tablespoons of minced red onion
Kosher salt and pepper
1 minced jalopeno
1 teaspoon of cider vinegar
1 tablspoon of olive oil
Mix thoroughly in a bowl and serve with the turky wings.
