Turkey School

Everything you need to pull off a perfect Turkey Day.

It all starts with selection. When choosing a turkey, look for a fresh, unbasted turkey. A prebasted bird is usually injected with a mixture of broth, vegetable oil, and seasonings. Reading the label will help you tell if the turkey has been prebasted.

And while shopping for your holiday meal grocery list, be sure to include extra items to use for garnishing the turkey platter.

A few of our favorites:
• Fresh herbs 
• Curly endive
• Orange slices 
• Baby carrots with tops
• Flowering kale 
• Cherry tomatoes
• Fresh cranberries 
• Celery leaves
• Small bunches of grapes 
• Baked acorn squash rings
