Thanksgiving is a holiday that I look forward to every year. It's like Christmas and your birthday all rolled into one! The food is great, the turkey is my favorite, and everyone gets together with their family members from years past. This year especially has been an exciting time for me because I've started a blog about thanksgiving food. It's called Thankful for Stuff (and stuff like that). I hope you have a great time with your family, and I hope this blog helps you through the cooking process!
Thanksgiving food is delicious but also pretty complicated. So let's take a look at how to make sure your thanksgiving meal will be delicious!
- The bird is best cooked in a roasting pan, with the cavity filled with water and apple cider vinegar. Cook at 325°F for 3-4 hours until the internal temperature reaches 180°F.
- Remove from the oven and allow to rest for 15 minutes before carving; do not undercook it! If you're using a breast instead of legs or thighs, stick them back in the oven for an additional 30 minutes after removing them from their juices (and don't forget about those giblets!).
- To make gravy: Place all ingredients except flour in a saucepan; boil over medium heat until thickened slightly (about 10-15 minutes). Whisk in flour until smooth then remove from heat immediately before stirring again as this cooks off some liquid content too quickly which contributes towards its thicknesses when serving later at the table.
Thanksgiving is a lot of food. It's a lot of fun. It's also a lot of people, so much so that it can be hard to fit into your calendar all the things you want to do on this one day.
But don't worry! You're not alone in feeling overwhelmed by the sheer volume of turkey and stuffing-induced carbohydrates that will be consumed over the next few days (or maybe weeks).
