With Thanksgiving only a few days away I hope you have your turkey in the fridge defrosting (unless you’re buying fresh) or it probably won’t be defrosted in time.

I thought I would share Turkey cooking and craving tips from these great sources.  For the roasting tips, I agree with everything he does except remember to remove your turkey from the oven when it’s about 5 degrees from being to the 165° because your turkey will keep cooking for about 10 minutes after it comes out of the oven and is resting.  It will be the perfect temperature by the time you slice it and not overdone.

Here’s a video showing you how to beautifully crave up a turkey.

  1. It looks so easy and, yet, my turkey is always a mess after slicing. I’ll refer back to this on Thursday! Have a Happy Turkey Day!

      I can’t say that mine is ever that pretty either, but I think it just takes practice 🙂 You have a Happy Thanksgiving as well.
