I wonder if albinism affects the taste of the meat.

Good question dlarsen. I really don't know the answer to that question but i would think the muscle mass and tissue would be the same as a normal gened animal as well as blood color. :lol: I don't think that external color would make a difference in muscle tissue flavor. Can't tell the difference in flavor of a black pig or pink pig; same with other mammels...so my GUESS would be no difference in flavor. I could be totally wrong, though! :mrgreen:

LOL! I imagine they taste the same as their colored brethren but you never know.

I have know way of knowing if this is true or not but...
I heard about some genetically modified turkeys from the U of M that where altered to be a lot larger. The turkeys were going to be put down at the end of the study and someone managed to convince one of the researchers to give them to him. He slaughtered them in his garage but the darn things ran around for quite a long time after their heads were removed. Apparently his garage was ruined with a lot of turkey blood. But worse, the meat was very tough and rubbery so he ended up with a lot of inedible turkey meat. :lol:

My aunt would hold the chicken and I would cut the heat off and then she would put the chicken inside of a small bucket to restrict it's movements. One of the larger roasting birds was very active, tipped the bucket over and it got up and ran around the coop for some time before it collapsed. chicken blood everywhere :lol:

Were in for some interesting foods by crossing and genetically changing animals.

How does Turkey Jerky sound :P

It's good.

Unlike beef, the Turkey has to be fully cooked before drying, so it's a good
way to use up leftover Turkey.

Marinating the Cooked Turkey in teriyaki sauce before drying tastes good.
Some people use Soy Sauce or a 50/50 blend of Soy/Worcestershire sauce.

I like to just sprinkle it with Hot sauce before drying.

Be cafeful not to over dry.

Cheers!
