Turkey is healthy, yummy and low in cholesterol. Poultry is much healthier than pork or beef. That’s why doctors recommend eating it from time to time, in order not to have problems with blood pressure and the nervous system. Even kids and pregnant woman can eat the same amount of this meat as most of adults do.
To cook a perfect meal, you need to know how to choose and prepare it. While choosing a turkey, pay attention to the colour and fragrance of the meat. It should be good-looking and not too skinny. The colour of the skin can be creamy or light. If you buy fresh poultry, do it no earlier than 2 days before cooking. Frozen turkey can be stored in the freezer for several weeks.
When you get down to cooking, I recommend you tie the legs and wings. Fix the turkey for it to look good after cooking. It’s also a good idea to cut off the breast keel bone. In this case it will be easier for you to cut baked turkey into pieces. Another useful recommendation is to cover the places which can burn using tinfoil.
The time needed to cook to the turkey depends both on your oven and the size of the turkey. Now that you know some helpful tips, let’s look at how you can improve the taste. Of course, we’re talking about turkey dressing and turkey stuffing recipes. One of the most popular are: bread, thin slices of potato, prunes, mushrooms, sweet potato, buckwheat, rice, minced pork, apples and a mixture of various other vegetables. If there are leftovers of the stuffing, you can put them on the tray near the turkey. We also recommend you add herbs, slices of onion, garlic and lemon. This way the dish will be more fragrant and very soft. Turkey should definitely be baked with herbs, citrus and spiced vegetables. As for the mayonnaise, oil or sour cream, they shouldn’t be used to cover the skin. If you do this, the turkey will be crunchy, but raw inside.
