Making an actual turkey can be an overwhelming prospect to even the most seasoned cook. And making it right so that it doesn’t dry out is a challenge in and of itself. In our family home, my mother-in-law makes the turkey – and it is served to perfection every time. (I’m thrilled making the appetizer, sides and dessert. If I were ever going to write a Thanksgiving cookbook, it would be called “Everything But the Bird.”) My mother-in-law’s secret: she cooks the bird upside down. Brilliant!
