Juicy Kosher Turkey recipe?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I am making a Turkey for thanksgiving, and am using a kosher turkey, which means it has been salted already. I'm assuming I can't brine it in that case or else it will come out too salty. I also can't massage it with butter because I don't mix dairy with meat or poultry (religious reasons). I don't like using margarine because it's so unhealthy. SO, after all of those restrictions, what can I use to make a delicious and JUICY turkey? Thank you!

A koshered turkey is pretty close to a basic brine as it is so don't worry about that.

 

You shouldn't need extra fat. If you want to baste with a fat to help the skin, render down the fat from around the neck and cavity of the bird as you would with schmalz. Then use that as you would butter or similar. 

 

There was a recent thread with some good turkey info.
