COOKING TIPS, INFORMATION
WARNING: DEEP-FRYING CRAZE
People can do themselves serious injury attempting to
deep-fry their turkey. In the past deep-frying has burned down
houses and put cooks in hospital.
Deep-fried turkey is juicy, and better tasting. However with
this high risk method of cooking, besides the above, your turkey
can end up charred by the resulting inferno.
There is an advantage of deep-frying due to its speed. Cooking time is
3 1/2 minutes per pound. A big turkey is done in less then an
hour. If you are going to deep-fry your turkey use a commercial
pressurized fryer, rather than vats on a stand.
An uncovered pan with a rack in the bottom gives the best
results in roasting. Cooking time varies with preference.
For rare meat, 16 minutes per pound.
For medium meat, 22 minutes per pound.
For well done meat, 30 minutes per pound.
Add salt during or after cooking, not before. The salt flavour
does not penetrate more then 1 inch. If the meat does not reach
the desired colour during roasting, increase the heat to (500 F)
for a few minutes before removing from the pan.
Methods of searing is subjecting the meat to a high temperature
until it is nicely browned.
