Prep Time: 15 mins
Cook Time: 4 hrs
  1. Preheat the oven at 275°F.
  2. Mix the turkey ingredients together (butter, cooking oil, maple syrup, vinegar, thyme, garlic and a pinch of salt and pepper) in a baking dish to create a sauce. Put the turkey drumsticks on the baking dish, pierce with a fork, and coat drumsticks with the sauce to distribute evenly on and under the skin.
  3. Put the dish in the oven and bake for 4 full hours. Reserve the cooking fats when done.
  4. Put the potatoes in a pot, cover with water and sprinkle with a generous pinch of salt. Bring to a boil and cook until tender. Drain. Cut potatoes in half and set aside.
  5. Once the drumsticks are cooked, golden and fork-tender, remove from the oven and let cool for a few minutes, then shred the meat and keep warm.
  6. In a hot skillet set at medium-high heat, pour a small amount of the reserved cooking fats and cook the potatoes until golden and tender. Remove the skillet from heat and set aside.
  7. In the same skillet, cook the asparagus 2-3 minutes, then remove from heat.
  8. Assemble your plates with turkey, potatoes and asparagus.
