Smoked turkey tail- and recommendations for ethnic grocery store

wandajune6 | Jan 20, 2012 07:22 AM

I recently bought a smoked turkey tail with the idea that I would use it in bean soup instead of a ham hock. It was very cheap and I thought it could be an interesting addition. Now that it's home, I'm realizing that I've never used a ham hock much less a turkey tail.

So- any recommendations on how to use it? Be it for soup or any other purpose?

And, while off-topic, I'd like to ask: if you could buy any (low cost) food item, what would it be? I'm going to Jungle Jim's (, Cincinnati's foodie mecca- a grocery store that's at least 2x the size of Costco with foods from all over the world. I'm shopping on a budget but love buying fun, random ingredients to work with. My current list includes French lentils, dried black mushrooms, daikon, bulgogi meat, mushroom extract granules, and frozen artichoke bottoms (all of these, of course, assuming that they aren't $$$).

Any suggestions for fun things to try?
