    Default Turkey Jelly?!!!

    Ok, I need an answer quick, because if this fails, I'll cry.

    I boiled down a turkey and to get the fat to rise to the top of the broth, I put it all in the fridge. Well, I just took it out to scrape the fat off and I have turkey jello!!! Ew ew ew!!! Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!

    Please, someone tell me if I leave this sitting out overnight it will de-jello-ify itself!!!

    It should liquefy whenever you heat it. But don't let it sit out overnight! You'll get food poisoning if you do, and then you eat it. When you're ready to use it just put it in a pan and warm slowly like you're melting butter.
    “When you get to the end of all the light you know
    and it's time to step into the darkness of the unknown,
    faith is knowing that one of two things will happen:
    you will be given something solid to stand on,
    or you will be taught how to fly.” - Edward Teller


    “Our Earth is degenerate in these later days;
    there are signs that the world is speedily
    coming to an end;
    bribery and corruption are common; children no
    longer obey their parents;
    every man wants to write a book and the
    end of the world is evidently approaching.”
    — From a translation of an inscription on
    an Assyrian clay tablet, circa 2800 B.C.E.


    God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
    courage to change the things I can,
    and the wisdom to know the difference
    .

    Phew! Ok, crisis averted. I warmed up the broth til it was ungellified and now I have it in my freezer. I also have a pot of pea soup on the go overnight, too!

    K, enough excitement for one day. I'm going to bed.

    Sorry.

    The jell-ing is perfectly normal.

    Forget my laughter and know that you are doing the right thing and learning new things! Good for you!

    That is a sign of really good homemade stock!
    The bones leach protein into the broth as it cooks, that's what causes the jelling. Jell-O is made from bone extractitives.
