This year we bought a utility turkey for Christmas dinner. At 75 cents per pound, it was a bargain that was just too good to pass up!
But once thawed and unwrapped, the full truth of its imperfections were revealed. What to do?
We decided that surgery was in order, a skin graft of bacon, woven in a basket pattern. Fresh sage leaves were added and then into the oven it went.
Five hours later, out it came. A turkey of rare beauty!
