Seeing as it’s that time of year—here in the U.S. at least—when turkey is the staple food for celebrations, I figured it’s the perfect time to post this. For decades, it’s given us crispy-skinned, moist turkey every time 😎
Back in the 1960s, Aunt Polly, a Kentucky-raised in-law witnessed us Italian New Yorkers roasting a turkey for Thanksgiving dinner. My grandmother, at frequent intervals, rose through the night to keep the basting process going. Aunt Polly said, “I’m sorry to say this, but you people do not know how to cook turkey.” And so, thankfully from that day on, instead of continually rising ‘til dawn, our family rose to the dawn of a “New” Age of Roasting Turkey!

Though I believe we should be living gratefully every day, it’s nice to have a day we do it collectively 🙂
Have a Happy & Safe Thanksgiving, everyone.
