Basting a Turkey



begin by removing the turkey from the


this makes basting much safer using a

bowl baster or deep spoon pour the juice

from the bottom of the roasting pan over

the top of the bird you'll probably end

up doing this two or three times during

the roasting process when you do do

remember that you want to close the oven

door as you work so you don't lose too

much heat that's one of the reasons that

turkeys end up taking a long time to

cook basting in Turkey not only enriches

its flavour in color but keeps the bird

moist if the bottom of the pan seems dry

after a couple of hours of cooking add

some broth or water to it you can base

the turkey one last time after it comes

out of the oven
