How to Cook Turkey

We all want the perfect Norman Rockwell turkey.

Well, if you want a pretty picture, cook your turkey whole. But if you want properly cooked white meat, instead of the typical dry white breast that even gravy can’t save, then cut your turkey into pieces before cooking it. Turkey breast should be cooked to an internal temperature of 165 degrees, and the dark meat needs to be cooked to 175-180 degrees.

I also recommend brining your turkey (unless it is a self-basting or kosher turkey).

“Freedom from Want” is the title of that Norman Rockwell picture. Can you imagine what the world would be like if Americans had true freedom from want? If we could live with what we need instead of craving what we want…I guess the old saying is

Live simply so others may simply live.
