LOL:

"Dang, my oven broke!"
"That's okay, I keep a spare in the garage…"

Glad the turkey got cooked! Only cooked a 13 pounder this year so not as many leftovers as I wanted. The Jook lasted little more than one day. Sad

Whoa. I thought the turkey congee only happened at our house. We hardly had any meat. It almost all went into the jook.

hmmm, I didn't know anybody else made turkey jook either. I'm using some for jook, some for chow faan, some plain and some for sandwiches. Froze some too.

Jook is the best part of Thanksgiving! So many death matches happen annually just from family members fighting over the turkey carcass…

The church I went to in San Diego would cook Thanksgiving dinner the Saturday before Thanksgiving then on Sunday would serve the jook for lunch after service. Good memories!

What do you all put in yours?

Foojook & black mushrooms for us, seasoned with soy sauce and sesame oil.

Also made turkey spread--minced some meat, mixed with mayo and cranberry sauce. Serve on toast or crackers. Didn't believe it was good until I tried it several years ago.

Ohhhhhhh you guys have NO IDEA. LOL! Lol The routine goes as follows. Step 1) Make a huge turkey that you know is too big.
Step 2) Try to bribe the kids to eat more.
Step 3) Have Thanksgiving dinner for three more nights.
Step 4) Make turkey jook. Or slice the meat for a super dry turkey sandwich. Or leave it in the fridge to rot, then dump it.

But I gotta admit turkey jook is pretty darn good! Especially when the broth is from the turkey bones. Smile

I've never been a big fan of jook because my parents tend to prefer their jook very watery so our turkey jook was more like turkey soup. I've had good jook while traveling but I'll never order it by choice. One time I made a fish jook with a crock pot and my parents complained that it was too thick.

That's a good thing! Then you get to have it all to yourself! Smile

The could also just add some water/broth to their portion and heat it up a bit to make it the way they like....

Jook for me is comfort food. When it was cold growing up in San Francisco there was nothing better than a hot bowl of thick jook to stick to your guts and warm you up.

I tend not to order it in restaurants b/c no matter how good it is I still balk at paying for "just jook!"

Love it on the thick side =]
