Turkey Carving Instructions

    1. Allow the turkey to cool to an easy-to-handle temperature.
    2. Place the turkey in front of you on a cutting board--breast side up with the wings closest to you.
    3. Remove both wings by pulling them away from turkey and cutting into the joint. Remove the drumsticks and thighs in the same way.
    4. Take one breast off the bone. Start cutting downwards at the breastbone and along the ribs toward the outside. Continue carving down the carcass until the breast is removed. Place on board and slice. Remove and slice other side.
  • Separate the thigh meat from the bone after it cools
