Bharat and Cranberry Turkey Leg Stew

This week, I’m mostly took a break from working on the house for Thanksgiving preparations.  However, I did want to come up with what to do with the dark meat before the next weekend.  Instead of looking up a recipe, I decided to develop one from some of my favorite fall flavors and a wonderful spice mix called Middle Eastern 7 spice or baharat.  This spice mix is AMAZING.  I use it all the time after I discovered it for another recipe.  This is a recipe for the spice mix I use.  Combine that with cranberries and pumpkin, and you have a well-rounded taste of fall.  The Instant Pot is perfect for this, too.  If you kept the frame from the breast portion, it would be even better.  All the bones provide a wonderfully flavorful broth.

Here are the stats:

Here is the recipe:
