Here’s the recipe, former procrastinators. Perfect Every Time Turkey is below this week’s post. I goofed on the link to wwwhoneybrookfarms.com. This can-do-overnight recipe is great.
Rejoice! God our Maker, Redeemer, Provider is also our Transformer. He is moving us out of procrastination into diligence. We enjoy abundance we did not know until we became new women in Christ. We enjoy abundance we did not know until we began to benefit from the changes He orchestrates in us.
As fruitful ears for His harvest let’s
- Do all we can before Thursday.
- Be flexible and adaptable because the unexpected will happen.
- Ask His perspective and heart for those around us.
- Relax. (You’re not the turkey, right?)
- Exalt Him; enjoy Him.
What are you most grateful for his year?
Perfect Every Time Turkey
This is a slow roasting method. Determine the timeline you need. Forget the turkey until it comes out!
Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Choose any size turkey, remove neck and giblets, wash turkey, dry. Salt the cavity, and if desired, stuff with dressing of your choice. Rub outside with olive oil.
Place turkey breast- down on a poultry rack in a roasting pan. (This self-basting makes white meat very moist.)
Place turkey in oven for one hour to destroy surface bacteria.
Adjust heat to 180-185 degrees for any size turkey.
Use meat thermometer to check for doneness.
Mrs. Wilkes of Honey Brook Farms puts a 22 lb. turkey in at 5 pm Thanksgiving Eve. At 6 it goes to 185 and she leaves it uncovered until it’s done at 10 or 11 the next day.
The meat is delicious, juicy, and tender, browns perfectly and gives wonderful drippings for gravy. It slices beautifully and shrinks little. Vitamins and proteins are not harmed at such low heat. It cannot burn so needs no watching.
Once done, this turkey will not overcook You can leave it an additional 3-6 hours and it will be perfect.
