The gizzard, heart, and liver are visible when you peel back the breast plate (after removing the breast meat). The gizzard, which is oval in form and firm to the touch, will be the body's biggest organ. Simply separate it from the remainder of the bird by cutting.
The gizzard of a turkey is unique. It is a component of the digestive system, a powerful food-grinding organ that aids in the digestion of grains and insects in birds like the turkey. Because it performs the same function as teeth — if birds had teeth — it is also known as the gastric mill or the hen's teeth.
