Tips for a successful holiday


  1. Roast your turkey without stuffing and untrussed. Bake the stuffing in a casserole on the side. The turkey will roast more quickly, be juicier and your stuffing will have a nice crisp top.
  2. If you are cooking for a large group and want moist meat and crisp skin, it’s better to roast  two medium size turkeys than one huge bird.
  3. Use a bulb baster to baste your turkey instead of a brush and you won’t dislodge the spice crust.
  4. When making gravy, add a little Rub with Love Turkey rub for seasoning instead of salt & pepper. 
  5. Pass Rub with Love Turkey rub at the table to sprinkle on the turkey for a little extra flavor.
  6. If you buy a frozen turkey, make sure you allow enough time (at least 3 days) to thaw in the refrigerator rather than under cold running water. The fridge maintains a consistent, safe temperature and the texture of the meat will be better.
  7. Don’t forget to let your roasted turkey rest 10 to 20 minutes before carving to give the juices time  to settle.
