I Others credit the settlers of Virginia’s Jamestown with celebrating the first Thanksgiving as their version of England's ancient Harvest Home festival President Lincoln proclaimed Thanksgiving a national holiday in IH63, supposedly as a response to a campaign organized by magazine editor Sara Joseph Hale In I d id.

Are turkeys really dumb? Turkeys are not dumb; however, the domesticated turkey may appear less cunning and more docile compared to the wild turkey; whose survival depends on its adjustment to a less protective environment.

Feathers and more feathers It’s estimated that turkeys have approximately 3,500 feathers at maturity The bulk of turkey feathers are composted or otherwise disposed of; however, some feathers may be used for special purposes, for instance, dyed feathers are used to make Amencan Indian costumes or as quilts for pens The costume that “Big Bird” wears on “Seasame Street” is rumored to be made of turkey feathers Turkey feather down has been used to make pillows. For commercial use, turkey skins are tanned and used to make items like cowboy boots, belts or other accessories. (From the National Turkey Federation) Deep fried turkey, a concept which started in the South, is gradually rising in popularity nationwide. In fret, since deep frying turkey requires special equipment and lots of oil, groups of neighbors often get together to share the costs and the feast. For a Deep Frying Turkey experience that is fun and produces delicious results follow these guidelines: Equipment — You’ll need a 40 or 60 quart pot with basket, burner and propane gas tank, a candy thermometer to measure oil temperature and a meat thermometer to determine doneness of turkey. For added safety, have a fire extinguisher and pot holders nearby. To add flavor with different marinades and seasonings, you may want to purchase an injector. Location — Place fryer on level dirt or glassy area. Never fry a turkey indoors, in a garage or in any other structure attached to a building. Avoid frying on wood decks, which could catch fire, and concrete, which can be stained by the oil. Ingredients — Smaller turkeys, 8 to IO pounds and turkey parts such as breast, wings and thighs are best for frying. You’ll need approximately five gallons of oil; more for larger turkeys. Turkey can be injected with a marinade, coated with breading (such as Shake ’n’ Bake) or seasoned with and). Cooking Preparation — To determine the correct amount of oil, place the turkey in the basket and place in the pot. Add water until it reaches 1-2 inches above the turkey. Remove the turkey and note the TURKEY HOTLINE (Automated assistance available after-hours) 1-800-323-4848, open to United States and Canada.

Pour out die water and dry the pot thoroughly. Be sure to measure for oil before breading or marinating the turkey. Heat the oil to 3S0-degrees. Depending of the amount of oil jised, this usually takes between 45 minutes and one hour. While $e oil is heating, prepare the turkey as desired, lf injecting a marinade into the turkey, puree ingredients so that they will pass through the needle. Even so, you may have to strain the mixture to remove larger portions. Remove skinjf desired, lf breading the turkey, place the turkey in a gallon-sized storage bag with breading and shake to coat. Do not stuff turkeys for deep frying. Frying the Turkey — Once the oil has come to temperature, place the turkey in the basket and slowly lower into the pot. Whole turkeys require approximately 3 minutes per pound to cook. Remove turkey and check internal temperatures with meat thermometer. The temperature should reach 170 degrees in the breast and 180 degrees in the thigh. Turkey parts such as breast, wings and thighs require approximately 4-5 minutes per pound to come to temperature. Additional Safety Tips — Never leave the hot oil unattended and don’t allow children or pets near the cooking area. Allow the oil to cool completely before disposing or storing. Immediately wash hands, utensils, equipment and surfaces that have come in contact with raw turkey. Turkey should be consumed immediately and leftovers stored in the refrigerator within two hours of cooking.    \ (From the National Turkey Federation)    , (hr unto adm IDV hi i ha \\ (LEMUS t TUXEDOS 321 Mill Street.
