How To Carve A Turkey
Whether you’ve roasted a Thanksgiving turkey or deep-fried one in the backyard, follow these easy steps to retrieve the tender meat.
Use a sharp carving knife for best results when carving a whole turkey. While slicing, keep the turkey from moving by holding it in place with a meat fork. Carve on a stable cutting surface, such as a plastic cutting board or platter. Cutting a turkey is easier if it is allowed to stand for about 15 minutes after roasting. To carve a turkey, place the turkey breast up with its legs to the right if you're right-handed or to the left if left-handed. Remove the ties or skewers.
