Helpful Thanksgiving Tips

Monday, November 21, 2016 @ 08:11 AM
posted by mrscaz

These tips are great to take note of a week or, a few days before Thanksgiving…

1. Check your cookware and kitchen tools.
In addition to planning your menu, it’s just as important to make sure you have all the cookware and kitchen vintage-1772596_640tools you’ll need to prepare dinner. Do you need a roasting pan, more pie dishes, or a meat thermometer? If you haven’t already, now’s the time to take inventory and figure out what you still need.

2. Get ready to start thawing your turkey.
If your turkey is frozen, it’s time to start thinking about thawing it. A completely frozen turkey needs a day to thaw for every four pounds in weight. And if you plan to brine your turkey, it needs to be defrosted one day sooner.

3. Know how to cook your turkey without a roasting pan.
A roasting pan can be an expensive piece of cookware to buy, considering it only gets used a couple times a year, at best. If you don’t have one and are still unsure about buying one, relax — there are plenty of ways to cook your bird without one.
