No More Dry Turkey

Lesley Varwig


I do not remember where I got the recipe, but this recipe puts a end to eating dry turkey.
I was in charge of a disaster canteen for the Salvation Army in Florida and cooked a lot of turkeys for their dinners.
We had a professional chef in our worship center who asked for my recipe, said "your turkey's are so good".
I am now 85 years old and still asked to cook the family's turkeys.
