FOX & Food: Tips for a Tender Thanksgiving Turkey
Really want to impress with a tasty turkey this Thanksgiving? A dry bird is every cook’s nightmare for the holiday, and we have tips for tender, moist meat.
FOX News Radio’s Lilian Woo has the advice:
For tender meat, some people swear by starting the turkey breast-side down. Still others soak cheesecloth in a butter mixture, then drape it over the breast and legs. “How to Cook Everything” author Mark Bittman believes it’s all about getting the bird to the right temperature.
(Bittman) “Between 155-165 degrees in the thickest part of the thigh.”
For beautiful, brown skin, he believes in starting with high heat.
(Bittman) “400-450, and when I’m convinced that the skin is gonna get brown enough, then I turn it down.”
To go beyond seasoning with salt and pepper, some like to inject a marinade. Still others rub herbed butter beneath the skin. Also, let the turkey rest for a while before carving, so juices can settle throughout the bird.
