Jennie-O Turkey Store Provides Tips For Stress-Free Holiday Entertaining

Stocks in this article: HRL

WILLMAR, Minn., Nov. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Every November, Americans gather with family and friends to give thanks and celebrate with a decadent spread featuring a delicious turkey as the iconic centerpiece.

With food prices continuing to climb, Thanksgiving specials offer a once-a-year opportunity to find value in discounted whole turkeys.

"One way to stretch your grocery budget during the holidays is to purchase an additional whole turkey around Thanksgiving," said Chuck Meath, vice president of retail sales, Jennie-O Turkey Store. "Leading up to the holiday, retailers often offer turkeys at the lowest prices of the year. An extra turkey can provide a family with a full week's worth of wholesome, high-protein meal options."

This year, Jennie-O Turkey Store is on a mission to show how easy it is to eat well on a budget with delicious turkey and is offering simple tips to make this Thanksgiving a stress-free affair.

Remove the Worry from the Main CourseAs any host can attest to, between cleaning the house, grocery shopping and preparing the high-stakes Thanksgiving meal, the holiday can quickly become muddled with stress.

With loved ones to feed (and impress), preparing a tender, mouth-watering turkey is essential to a memorable Thanksgiving. Choosing the right turkey is the first step. A general rule of thumb is to purchase a whole turkey that will provide a 1 lb. serving for each guest. This portion size will allow enough turkey for the Thanksgiving meal and still leave plenty of meat for tasty leftovers.

Once back in the kitchen, some home chefs may be concerned about cooking their Thanksgiving turkey. However, one easy-to-use kitchen tool erases the worry.

"Meat thermometers build confidence for home cooks by taking the guesswork out of preparing the Thanksgiving turkey," said Renee Cool, product manager, Jennie-O Turkey Store. "This tool gives a true sense of assurance and piece of mind that your whole turkey will come out tender, delicious and fully-cooked."

To find the target temperature for whole turkeys, simply consult the directions found on the product's packaging.
