3 Tips for Making Turkey
1. Roasting Turkey - When roasting turkey, roast as usual, then carve all meat from bones and place carved meat in juices from turkey. Add chicken broth to cover meat and cover. Store in refrigerator overnight and reheat in 350 degree oven just before serving next day. Turkey is even better tasting than just cooked and is moist and already carved for your turkey dinner. Place meat on serving platter hot and moist for your family and guests' delight. Use some of the juices and broth to make great turkey gravy. Robert Wagner, Remington, IN
2. Thawing Turkey - Thawing your turkey in the refrigerator is the preferred method for safety reasons, but you can also thaw it in cold water. The thing to remember about both methods is that they keep your turkey cold while thawing - the key to preventing excessive bacterial growth.
3. Cold-Water Method for Thawing Turkey - If it's the day before you plan to serve your turkey and you just remembered that it's still sitting in the freezer, don't despair. Check the wrapping to make sure there are no tears, and simply place the bird in its unopened bag in the sink or in a large container and cover it with cold water. If the wrapping is torn, place the turkey in another plastic bag, close securely, and then place in water. You will need to change the water frequently to assure safe but effective thawing. The National Turkey federation recommends every 30 minutes as a rule of thumb.
