This is a hearty, tasty and healthy dinner - easy to cook in one pot either in the oven or on the stove top - as you rush about preparing for the holidays.
|2 Pkg||Maple Leaf Prime Turkey Winglets and Drumettes (8 pieces)|
|4||large potatoes, peeled, each cut into 8 pieces|
|4||large carrots, peeled, cut into large pieces|
|2||parsnips, peeled, cut into bite size pieces|

|1 lb||asparagus (or other vegetables)|
|1 cup||loosely chopped green bitter herbs (such as Italian Parsley, dandelion, kale, collards)|
braise and brown the turkey wings on both sides in the hot butter or oil in a large dutch oven on the stove top. Add 1/2 the marjoram.
add the chopped onion and brown. Add the balance of the marjoram. Season with salt and pepper.
add 1/3 cup cold water, put lid on the pot. bring to a boil, reduce and cook for about 20 minutes on medium.
Stir, add the root vegetables, mixing the juices of the cooking turkey with the vegetables.
Add more water if needed, cover, bring to a boil and reduce to simmer. Cook for 30 minutes or until tender.
Alternatively you may add the water and put the pot into the oven to cook for about 50 minutes at 375 F.
Add the chopped bitter greens, mix gently, taking care not to break the root vegetables and wings
Place the washed, trimmed asparagus/other vegetables on top to steam for 10 minutes (alternative - you may use another pot to steam and transfer to the big pot when tender).
The wings can be roasted in advance in the oven at 400 F degrees for about 35 minutes before placing into the dutch oven to be steamed.
