Thanksgiving Day is Just Around the Corner

That is, if you live in the United States. Thanksgiving Day this year falls on the 27th of November. For the best Thanksgiving Day Recipe Round-Up check out what Jerry of Cooking by the Seat of My Pants has put together HERE. You really don't want to miss this!

If this is your first year cooking a turkey, or even if you've done it before and hit a snag or have a question, Foster Farms is available to rescue you!

From November 19 to December 1, including Thanksgiving Day, the Foster Farms Turkey Helpline may be accessed 24-hours a day, seven days a week by calling (800) 255-7227. The Turkey Helpline is staffed by live operators and provides consumers with tips to help make their turkey dinners a success. Prior to November 19 and after December 1, the Foster Farms Turkey Helpline is available Monday through Friday between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. PST. Online self-help resources are available at year-round.

Foster Farms isn't only there for help - check out this recipe for Citrus Turkey:

Citrus Turkey

1 Foster Farms Whole Turkey
4 oranges
2 grapefruits
2 lemons
2 limes
2 tangelos or tangerines
1 sweet onion (maui or Vidalia)
1/8 cup honey
1 tablespoon pepper, divided
1/4 cup tequila or lime juice

1. Zest citrus, dice onion and blend together with honey, tequila (or lime juice) and 1/2 tablespoon of pepper. Cut the leftover citrus into wedges and reserve for stuffing.

2. Spread zest into mixture over the exterior of the bird. Rub remaining pepper into cavity of bird and then stuff with citrus wedges.

3. Tie legs together and then BBQ for best results. If cooking in the oven, baste the bird with drippings, or make extra zest to drip over it as it cooks.

Very nice. I have also a site for recipes for cooking, but you have to translate the Google translate. I am from Slovakia.
