And the turkey is in the oven!
(and the camera batteries are in the charger!)
We’re really hoping we’re doing all of this right. I mean, there isn’t any complete tutorial that I’ve found (with photos!) of how to prepare a turkey for roasting… I’m reading stuff about tucking the wings somehow under somewhere and wha? Oh well. Tie them with a string and hope it all comes out for the best.
Liquid in the pan? No liquid? What temperature? Foil tent? How long? I sure hope our meat thermometer is accurate…
You never really appreciate the value of a quality roasted turkey until you try to do it yourself!
Atleast you did not cook your first ever turkey with the bag of giblets inside like I did many years ago only to discover the bag while carving! PS: no one got sick!
Doh! Wish I’d seen this earlier! http://www.kraftcanada.com/en/cookingschool/cookingtechniques/roasting/turkey101.htm
