There’s an old French proverb that states, “The best use of bad wine is to drive away poor relations.”
So if you have a few bottles sitting around that you procured from a source other than Vinesse (shame on you!), open them up for those distant cousins and annoying in-laws you’d just as soon didn’t come back next year.
And with that snarky observation, we have one question for you: What are you doing online? Shouldn’t you be in the kitchen, getting the bird prepared?
Statistics show that most families will cook a turkey that ranges in weight from 8 to 12 pounds.
How do you know when it’s done? According to experts, it’s when a breast attains an internal temperature of 170 degrees, a thigh reaches 180 degrees and the stuffing reaches 165 degrees.
All ovens are different, and suggested cooking temperatures also can vary. But as a general rule, a turkey falling within this weight range will take between three and three-and-a-half hours to cook completely.
So, we repeat: What are you doing online?
