Tips for Safely Preparing Your Thanksgiving Meal


 
Thanksgiving and the holidays are times we enjoy sharing the kitchen with our family and friends. Whether you are preparing your first Thanksgiving meal, or are an experienced chef, it is important you are aware of the safest ways to prepare and cook your turkey and fixings.

When preparing your Thanksgiving meal, be aware of the four main safety issues as advised by the CDC.

Safe Thawing: Thaw your turkey at a safe temperature. Temperatures between 40 and 140°F are the ranges where bacteria can rapidly multiply. Thaw food safely in the refrigerator, the microwave, or in cold water.
 
Safe Preparation: After working with raw poultry, always wash your hands, work surfaces, and utensils before touching other foods.
 
Safe Stuffing: To ensure stuffing is cooked safely and correctly, cook stuffing outside the turkey in casserole dish. If you wish to place stuffing inside the turkey, use a food thermometer to be sure the center of the stuffing reaches a safe internal temperature of 165°F.
 
Safe Cooking:  According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), Thanksgiving is one of the leading dates for home cooking fires. Never leave the kitchen unattended and check on your turkey frequently. Before taking your turkey out of the oven, ensure it has been cooked to a safe temperature of 165°F, by using a food thermometer.

Stay Safe this Thanksgiving



Thanksgiving is the number-one day for home fires. According to a report recently published by the U.S. Fire Administration, the number of residential fires on Thanksgiving Day is more than double the average number of fires on all other days. Although wildly popular, the improper use of turkey fryers can lead to devastating burns, and the destruction of property. If you are among the millions of Americans who enjoy a deep fried turkey on Thanksgiving, ensure your holiday is a joyous one by following these safety tips while deep frying your turkey:
·         Fryers should always be used outdoors, on level ground, and at least 30 feet away from buildings and flammable materials.
·         Do not overfill fryer with oil; this will cause the oil to spill when the turkey is put in.
·         Make sure the turkey is completely thawed before it is placed in a fryer. A partially frozen turkey will cause cooking oil to splatter when put in the pot.
·         Take your time lowering the bird in the oil — about 2 inches at a time, with short pauses in between — and cook it for 3½ minutes per pound.
·         Never leave the fryer unattended.
·         Use well-insulated potholders or oven mitts. Wear long sleeves and safety goggles to protect from splatter.
·         Never let children or pets near the fryer when in use or after use, as the oil can remain hot for hours.
·         Keep all-purpose fire extinguishers nearby.
·         If a turkey fryer fire occurs, call 911 immediately.
From our family to yours, have a safe and tasty Thanksgiving dinner!
