And where do you get it or how do you make it if you do? DD loves honey baked turkey, but I hate giving it to her. (DH makes his sandwiches out of it.) She also doesn't eat much meat at all as it is, so I'd like to offer her something she likes.

Why not buy an electric knife, brine and roast your own pastured turkey, and slice the breast into sandwich slices?

No, it doesn't look like it. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> The nearest Whole Foods is at least two hours away.

Is that how it's made? I think I could probably do that! I tried to look online for directions, but didn't see any.<br><br>
So I would brine the whole turkey and then roast it? I might try that!

I'm really fond of <a href="http://www.foodnetwork.com/food/recipes/recipe/0,,FOOD_9936_8389,00.html?rsrc=search" target="_blank">Alton Brown's turkey brine recipe</a> on the Food TV website. It's fairly NT adaptable (use rapadura or honey instead of the brown sugar, olive oil or coconut oil or palm oil for the canola oil, etc.).

My family won't eat turkey sandwiches made with "real" turkey. I get either applegate farms or wellshire farms sliced turkey breast for the occasional sandwiches. They are not pastured, but are organic, abx-free, and hormone free.<br><br>
I decided that once in awhile, it is a nice break from PB&J. Plus, no more than we eat it, I don't think it's a problem. The other thing, is it's a quick thing for after my baby is born (which will hopefully be very soon!).
