The Main Event!
All the sides, desserts and company can be spot on, but if the turkey is dry and the gravy tasteless the whole meal is a fail!
I always buy organic fresh turkeys and it has to be Blue Goose. Blue Goose’s farming philosophy is to treat the land and animals with respect and dignity. Animals are raised in cage-free environments and farms that are never over-populated. None of the animals on Blue Goose’s farms are ever fed animal by-products and are always hormone and antibiotic-free. The result is Certified Organic turkeys and chickens that have outstanding flavour, tenderness and juiciness. It may cost a little more than conventional but there is no comparison in taste. Your guests will rave.
They do at times tend to be smaller than conventional turkeys but if you have a large crowd and need a huge turkey then just select two and cook them together.
I’ve included recipes for a no fail stuffing and gravy. The stuffing is filled with Italian turkey sausage, apples and cranberries. Its the perfect combination of sweet and savoury. Don’t be intimidated by cooking a turkey and stuffing it. It’s really quite simple if you follow the basic directions and use a meat thermometer. When you take it out of the oven it really is important to let it rest for 30 minutes. During that time it also gives you the moments you need for making the gravy and gathering the troops!
I hope this series has inspired you to create a beautiful holiday menu and get excited about feeding some hungry guests! Happy holidays!
