And of course you measured your turkey with water and IN the pot before you started heating up the oil right?
Checking your bird’s volume BEFORE you dunk it into bubbling hot oil is a smart move.
If you haven’t, here’s a few easy steps that only take 60 seconds:
- Empty pot.
- Insert bird
- Add water to cover bird
- Remove bird
- Measure remaining water. That’s how much peanut oil you put into pot.
If you did NOT measure your oil prior to frying, your pot could overflow…and this could happen to you
Don’t be crispy this Thanksgiving!
