1:47 am
better catchch it quick. >> but margine, there are a lot of people who are first-time bird cookers this thanksgiving. what do you do if you've left the gizzards inside and forgo to take them out? >> a lot of people panic over that, but it's not a problem at all. it's really part of the turkey. i don't know how good the giblets will be after they've cooked inside the bird, but it's not g gng to hurt the turkey. >> okay. so margine, what would you say then is the most basic thing that ylu can tell us to do to ensure success when we are cooking our turkey today? >> well, the best thing is to have a meat thermometer because then you can monitor exactly when the turkey's done. it will not overcook that way. and because overcooking gives you dry meat. ananso a meeeet t trmometer is really importata and inow it'ss a little late to get one a a this point. >> if you don't have one, is
1:48 am
timing and how ready the bird is? >> well, you know, we do have some charts with times. and if you kind of follow that, that will be a big help. but you can pierce the skin on the thigh area. that's the last part to finish cooking. and if the juices run clear, that's an indication it's done. >> who knew. >> that's good to know. what do you do if you've overcooked the bird and it's way too dry? >> well, all you can do is add either some you know broth or some gravy and serve it with the gravy to help, you know, mask that. there isn't anything else you can do really. >> margine, my turkey is supppped to look black at the end, right? >> no, not quite. not quite. golden brown is what youe looking for. >> but and going back to, all right, say i've caught the
1:49 am
this point. is it too late to defrost it and still make it in time for dinner? >> probably, unless you only have a two-pound turkey. it takes 30 minutes per pound to defrost in cool wawar. so you know, a 20-pound bird, you have to have ten hours before it will deprofit. if it's still frozen at this point, you really can't cooking from frozen. it's just a little harder to determine when it's going to be done. and it won't cook as evenly but you know, worst comes to worst, you'll have to do it that way. >> what's better, stuffing inside in the cavity or outside? >> it's really a personal preference. i like mine inside the bird. but you do have a few cautions, and one is, don't make your stuffing ahead so that you're putting cold stuffing inside the bird or it won't get done. rather, you can get all your
1:50 am
ingredients ready if you're cooking part of the ingredients, do that. and refref rate that but don't mix it with the crumbs till it's just ready to go into the oven. do the mixing in the bird. and then check the temperature. it needs to reach 165 to know the stuffing is safe. >> there's so much to think about. do you also know the number to pizza hut just in case everything goes wrong. >> oh, no, it won't go wrong. you're going to have a wonderful turkey today. >> margine, you have a happy thanksgivingng >> thank you it's been funo be with you. >> margine with butter ball's an turkqy talk line. you are such a lifesaver every year. thank you and happy thanksgiving. >> the funny thing is she's actually having tofurkey. she's an expert. now that you've got your turkey sorted out, are you ready for some football sflb that other thanksgiving necessity straight

3:12 am
>> but marge, there are a lot of people who are first-time bird cookers this thanksgiving. what do yoyodo if you've left the gizzards inside e d forgot to take them out? >> a lot of people panic over that, but actually, it's not a problem at all. it's really part of the turkey. i don't know how good the giblets will be after they've cooked inside the bird, but it's not going to hurt the turkey. >> okay. so marge, what would you say then is the most basic thing that you can tell us to do to ensure success when we are cooking our turkey today? >> well, the best thing is to have a meat thermometer because then you can monitor exactly when the turkey's done. it will not overcook that way. and because overcooking gives u dry meat. and so a meat thermometer is really important and i know it's a little late to get one at this point. >> if you don't have one, is there another way to gauge timing and how ready the bird
3:13 am
is? >> right. well, you know, we do have some charts with h mes. and if yououind of follow that, , that will be a big help. but you can pierce the skin on the thigh area. that's the last part to finish cooking. and if the juices run clear, that's an indication it's done. >> who knew. >> that's good to know. what do you do if you've overcooked the bird and it's way too dry? >> bubut. >> well, all you can do is add either some, you know, broth or some gravy and serve it with the gravy to help, you know, mask that. there isn't anything else you can do really. >> marge, my turkey is supposed to look black at the end, right? >> no, not quite. not quite. golden brown is what you're looking for. >> and going back to, all right, say i've caught the turkey and it's still frozen and it's still
3:14 am
frozen at this point. is it too late to defrost it and still make it in time for dinner? >> probably, unless you only have a two-pound turkey. it takes 30 minutes per pound to defrost in cool water. so you know, a 20-pound bird, you're going to have to have ten hours before you will defrost it. if it's still frozen at this point, you really can cooking from frozen. it's just a little harder to determine when it's going to be done. and it won't cook as evenly but you know, worse comes to worst, you'll have to do it that way. >> what's better, stuffing inside in the cavity or outside? >> it's really a personal preference. i like mine inside the bird. but you do have a few cautions, and one is, don't make your stuffing ahead so that you're putting cold stuffing inside the bird or it won't get done. rather, you can get all your ingredients ready if you're
3:15 am
do that. and refrigerate that but don't mix it with the crumbs till it's just ready to go into the oven. do the mixing in the bird. and then check the temperature. the stuffing is safe. >> there's so much to think about. do you also know the number to pizza hut just in case everything goes wrong? >> oh, no, it won't go wrong. you're going to have a wonderful turkey today. >> thank you. marge, you have a happy thanksgiving. >> thank you it's been fun to be with you. >> marge with butterball's turkey talk line. you are such a lifesaver every year. thank you and happy thanksgiving. >> the funny thing is she's actually having tofurkey. she's an expert. now that you've got your turkey all sorted out, are you ready for some football? that other thanksgiving necessity straight ahead. thanksgiving necessity straight ahead.? sflb that other

4:18 am
it will not overcook that way and because overcooking gives you dry meat, and so a meat thermometer is really important and i know it's a little late to get one at this point. >> yeah. >> but and going back to, all right, say i've caught the turkey and it's still frozen, and it's still frozen at thihipoint, is it too late to defrost t and still make it i i time for dinner? >> probably unless you only have a two-pound turkey. it takes 30 minutes per pound to defrost in cool water, so, you know, a -pound bird, you're going to have to 10 hours before you will defrost it. if it's still frozen at this point, you really can't cook from frozen. it's just -- it's a little harder to determine when it's going to be done, and it won't cook as evenly, but, you know, worst comes to worststyou'll have t tdo it that way. okay, and what's better, stuffing inside in the cavity or outside?
4:19 am
preference. i like mine inside the bird, but you do have a few cautions, and one is, don't make your stuffing ahead so that you're putting cold stuffing inside the bird or it won't get done. rather, you can get all your ingredients ready if you're cooking some part of the ingredients, do that, and refrigerate that, but mix it with the crumbs till it's just ready to go into the oven. >> so there you have it. >> she had good advice. >> yeah. >> i did ask her for the pizza hut hot line. >> just in case. >> just in case for some of us that aren't so grade. before we go, one final look at preparations for the big parade. >> 3 million people are expected to line the streets of manhattan in a few hours for the macy's thanksgiving day parade and the balloons are ready to fly, look at them. beautiful sight.
