Did you know that an average of 46 million turkeys are consumed on Thanksgiving? Ranging from 5 to over 40 pounds! Here are some turkey tips for you to gobble up this Thanksgiving!
Before cooking your turkey, you should always clean your kitchen counter. We recommend using our Wipex Table Bussers! Wipex is an all-natural table and counter disposable wipe that will deep clean in one swipe.
After you wipe everything down, check to make sure that your turkey is thoroughly thawed out so it cooks evenly. An easy way to tell is to press your finger against it and feel for any cold spots.
Once the turkey is thawed properly you’ll have to wash your bird under cold water. Don’t forget to get the inside of your turkey clean too! Flip the turkey upside down to drain the remaining water. Make sure your turkey is all dry before cooking.
After dealing with your raw turkey you must clean your counters again. This will kill any lurking bacteria. Use Wipex to avoid cross-contamination when working with your raw turkey.
Don’t forget those hands! They’ve been all over that raw turkey. Wash your hands under hot water then use Germ-Away Antibacterial Wipes before continuing to cook.
Dress up your turkey to your liking and then place it in the oven. Check the temperature of your turkey to make sure it’s properly and evenly cooked to eat. Let the bird rest for at least twenty minutes before carving and then Gobble Gobble up and enjoy! Hope these turkey tips help you this Thanksgiving!
Here’s to enjoying the company of good friends, family and may your home be filled with laughter, love, and blessings!
Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at Dutch Harbor Brands!
