can I freeze leftover turkey in the broth made from the carcass, or will that do something evil to the meat ? Should I freeze separately ?

AntoniaJames actually recommends freezing turkey in broth (or gravy) to help it hold up better -- http://food52.com/blog...
Agree with Lindsay-Jean that freezing in turkey gravy is a good idea, depending on how you want to use the leftovers.
I find shredded turkey (or chicken) seems more moist in gravy when frozen and thawed. Warmed and poured over a baked potato, toasted (or not) bread for an open-faced sandwich, over buttered noodles. I shred while still warmish.
Not crazy about freezing in broth. Although I've done it. I find that it sucks out the meat juices while cooling or sitting in the freezer, and I'd just rather do the shred
Help me figure this one out. Thank you!
