You’ve bought it, stuffed it, cooked it, and now you have to carve it. If you’re daunted by the task―some of the best cooks are―just remember that carving a turkey comes down to simple technique. Follow the easy steps in this video.

What You Need

  • carving board
  • chef’s knife (or slicing knife)
  • paper towels
  • platter
  • cutting board
  • long
  • flexible knife (or boning knife)
  • tongs

Follow These Steps

  1. Remove the string
    Place the turkey on a carving board. Remove the string tying the legs together, using the tip of your chef’s knife.
  2. Remove the legs and thighs
    Cut through the skin that connects the breast and the drumstick. Slice down until you reach the joint. Using a paper towel, grab the leg and push down, separating the leg and thigh from the bird. Use your chef’s knife to slice through the joint.
  3. Remove the drumsticks
    Separate the drumstick and the thigh by cutting through the joint that connects them. Transfer the drumstick to a platter; set aside the thigh meat on a cutting board to slice later. Repeat steps 2 and 3 with the other leg.
  4. Remove the wishbone
    Find the wishbone at the front end of the breast. Use your fingers to pull it out.
    Tip: Removing the wishbone makes it easier to carve off the breast meat.
  5. Remove turkey breasts
    Find the breastbone. Position a long, flexible knife (or a boning knife) on one side of it, and slice downward, as close to the bone as possible. As you slice, use your other hand to pull the meat away from the breastbone, until you’ve cut the breast off the carcass in one piece. Transfer to the cutting board.
  6. Remove the wings
    Using the chef’s knife, slicing through the joint to remove a wing, and transfer to the platter. Repeat steps 5 and 6 on the other side.
  7. Slice the thigh meat
    Work on the cutting board. Holding the thigh bone with tongs or a paper towel, remove the meat from the bone with the edge of the chef’s knife. Transfer meat to platter.
  8. Slice the breast meat
    Using the tongs to steady the breast, position the meat so you’ll cut it at its shorter length. Slice against the grain, taking care to keep the skin attached. Transfer pieces neatly to a platter.

Enjoy your Turkey

 

Apple Dumpling Day

FOODCrescent Roll Apple Dumplings Are Better Than Pie

There are many different types of dumplings that are oh, so delicious…savory dumplings, sweet dumplings – the list goes on and on. Crescent Roll Apple Dumplings are very likely the easiest you’ll come across, and with ingredients you’ve likely already got on hand, this dish is out of this world.

The secret element that adds a sweetness like no other is the 7-Up added just before baking that makes the dumplings sticky and caramelized. These dumplings have a pie taste that will remind you of home with classic cinnamon and sugar.

 
Ingredients:

2 (8 each) cans refrigerated crescent roll dough

2 sticks of butter

1 1/2 cups brown sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 teaspoon cinnamon or to taste

12 ounces 7 Up (or Mountain Dew)

2 large Granny Smith apples, peeled and cored
Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and butter a 9×13 baking dish.

Wash the apples, peel and cut into eight equal slices.

Unwrap the crescent roll and separate the triangles.

Place a piece of apple on each triangle of dough (on a wider side) and roll it in a croissant.

Place rolls inside buttered baking dish.

In a separate bowl, combine the butter, cinnamon, sugar and vanilla, mix until you get a liquid mixture without lumps and pour over the roll.

Pour soda between rolls (but not over) and bake for 35-45 minutes, or until they become golden brown.

Serve immediately with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Tasty BBQ Corn on the Cob Great for Grilling

Original recipe makes 6 servings

1/8 teaspoon dried oregano

1 pinch onion powder

Cayenne pepper to taste

Garlic powder to taste

Salt and pepper to taste

1/2 cup butter, softened

6 ears corn, husked and cleaned

Directions

  1. Preheat grill for medium-high heat.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together the chili powder, oregano, onion powder, cayenne pepper, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Blend in the softened butter. Apply this mixture to each ear of corn, and place each ear onto a piece of aluminum foil big enough to wrap the corn. Wrap like a burrito, and twist the ends to close.
  3. Place wrapped corn on the preheated grill, and cook 20 to 30 minutes, until tender when poked with a fork. Turn corn occasionally during cooking.
