Here is Dallas Plummer in Dallas Texas with fitness instructor and wellness coach Michael Johnson preparing their organic Thanksgiving turkey dinner by cooking the turkey. Organic in this instance simply means that the turkey has no hormones or chemicals in its processing and from its hatching to it’s cultivation, it was not feed any chemically processed feed or supplements.
Having said this, we begin by par boiling the 17 pound turkey in a brine of sea salt, olive oil, pepper, tumeric and onions. Once the turkey is loosed up, especially at the joints, we take the turkey out of the pot and put it breast down in the baking pan for baking in the oven. This is done so that the dark meat of the turkey and all of its juices, trickle into the bottom of the baking pan, where the breast of the turkey, normally the driest meat, can absorb these juices.
Stay tuned for the next video as we prepare the collard greens with smoked turkey, the baked ziti, the macaroni and cheese, beef stroganoff and green beans. Visit fitness guru and wellness coach Michael Johnson’s fitness blog and Dallas Plummer’s New York centric blog for more pictures and videos.
