The Secret to a Juicy Turkey
Anyone cooking a bird tomorrow?? I have a tip for you on making a delicious, juicy turkey - LEAVE IT IN THE PAN FOR 1/2 AN HOUR AFTER ROASTING. You may be wondering why? When you pull your turkey out of the pan right away and carve it you'll likely have a dry turkey. All the juices have cooked out. If you leave your turkey to sit in the pan for a bit the juices will start to work their way back into the bird giving you a juicer piece of meat. You can still use some of that juice to make gravy with while it sits. I do this with all types of birds I cook though smaller birds like chicken require less time. Try it. It works! Hope all of you Americans have a Happy Thanksgiving tomorrow!
