Tip of the Month

Each month we post a new tip for you to use in the kitchen. We appreciate your comments and experiences with them.

This month's tip is: Cooking a Turkety !

turkey tips & timetable

How large a turkey should I purchase?

Allow 1 pound per person, for an average serving, or 1-1/2 pounds per person if you want leftovers.

how long to cook it?

For an unstuffed turkey:

8-12 pounds 1-1/2 to 3-1/2 hours

12-16 pounds 3-1/2 to 4 hours

16-20 pounds 4 to 4-1/2 hours

20-26 pounds 4-1/2 to 5-1/2 hours

add 20 to 40 minutes for a stuffed turkey.

And, how do I tell if it is done?

Insert an instant-read thermometer in the thickest part of the thigh. Your turkey is done when it registers 170°F. Stuffing should be 165°F.

Be sure to let the turkey rest at least 15 minutes, under a foil tent, before carving it.
