« It's Not Even Thanksgiving Yet And It's Already Starting... | Main | Butter Me Up »

November 24, 2003



Didja see that story in Slate last week where they compared several turkeys - a kosher turkey, an organic turkey, a free range turkey, an heirloom turkey and a Butterball - and the winner was ... the Butterball.


My theory is that the Butterball cheated. In the interests of science, the tester decided not to brine the birds. But the Butterball was already poked and prodded and injected with more chemicals than a botoxed-out Park Avenue socialite. It was pre-brined!

Turkey is such a dumb thing to cook, and the quality of the final product so irrelevent to our experience of Thanksgiving, that I would always take the free bird supermarkets distribute with $100 purchases this time of year.
