Keller Crafted News: A Newsletter For The Conscious Eater

Quick note from Mark Keller:

These pasture grazed Turkeys went live for our meat club members and our entire supply was wiped out in days. This was our first year and we had purchased a meaningful amount of birds. I spoke to John Peterson this week and he is so grateful for your support. Thank you! Trusting us with the centerpiece of your celebration makes the holiday season just a little bit sweeter for the Peterson family.

R&R: RECIPES & RESOURCES

THAWING & COOKING YOUR TURKEY

The best way to thaw your bird is in the refrigerator. The Turkey will thaw at the rate of about 4 pounds per day. Short on time? You can thaw it using the "Cold Water Method." Submerge the unopened, still wrapped Turkey in cold water and change the water every 30 minutes. This method thaws at the rate of 2 pounds per hour.

THANK YOU!

I am sitting in my home office on a Sunday afternoon sipping on some bone broth attempting to recover from last week and prepare for what lies ahead while listening to my kids studying to amazing music. Out the windows the sky is blue, a light warm breeze drifts through my window, and I KNOW I am blessed.
