Last Sunday Marty tested another recipe for Cook's Illustrated. I took one picture and needed to "rest" in the recliner. As noted in a previous blog, I have been sick. I rested for 2 to 3 hours, decided I might live, and got up. Marty had taken lots of pictures while he cooked and I slept.
The point of this recipe was to make a killer broth for gravy. The way the turkey was cooked kept it from browning as the traditional way of cooking turkey. Cook's Illustrated wanted a moist turkey, white and dark meat, that would cook quickly and easily. So no golden brown like magazine cover turkeys.
Below are the pictures with short notes. Marty did a good job of cooking and taking pictures.
Marty said the hardest part of this recipe was finding fresh turkey after Christmas. He went to 4 groceries before he found a turkey. And then he struck gold. The turkey was close to $22.00. But it was half off. Then because of a program we use on the Internet with Safeway, we had a special coupon that just showed up when he swiped our Safeway Card. Grand total for the turkey, $5.00. If we only had had room in the freezer, Marty would have bought a couple more turkeys.
