How to Carve a Thanksgiving Turkey w/ Martha Stewart

Friday, November 13th, 2009

Martha Stewart, via The New York Daily News, shows us how to carve your Thanksgiving Turkey!

The best way to hold the turkey steady on a carving board is to use your hand instead of the carving fork. A carving fork, while useful for arranging the meat once it is carved, will pierce and tear the flesh, and doesn’t provide the same grip. Do not use a serrated blade to cut, as it will also tear the flesh.

With scissors, cut through the trussing, taking care to remove all of the string. Remove the legs (above): Holding the tip of the drumstick with one hand, slice down through the skin between the leg and breast.

Did You Know? Countdown to Thanksgiving 2009 (11/13)

Friday, November 13th, 2009


Did You Know?
Facts, Figures &
Folklore about the Pilgrims
& America’s Thanksgiving

Nov 13 : 13 days till Thanksgiving

Did you know that half of the 110 Pilgrims who had left England in 1620 survived that first year in the New World?

In their second year, however, the Pilgrims flourished with plentiful food sources, thanks in large part to the friendship and guidance of an Abnaki Indian named Squanto.

Thanksgiving Day in America is a time to offer thanks, a time for family gatherings and holiday meals. A time of turkeys, stuffing, and pumpkin pie. A time for Indian corn, holiday parades and giant balloons. We are delighted to invite you to partake in our Thanksgiving celebration. Our table is full this year, but we always have room for one more! So join us for a new Did You Know? each day as we count down to Thanksgiving.

Thanksgiving will be celebrated on Thursday November 26th.
