So, what is turtle?

Turtle meat is a delicacy that has been enjoyed by cultures around the world for centuries. This lean, protein-rich meat is harvested from freshwater and sea turtles and has a texture similar to chicken or pork. Turtle meat is a great source of vitamins and minerals, including vitamin B12, iron, and zinc. It has a unique flavor that is often described as a cross between beef and fish, with a slightly gamey taste. Due to conservation concerns, the consumption of turtle meat is heavily regulated, making it a rare and sought-after ingredient in some parts of the world. If you're lucky enough to try turtle meat, it's best served in soups, stews, or as a savory filling in pies or pastries.
