How to Truss a Turkey
Tying a turkey makes it look pretty and prevents the wing tips from burning. Here's how to do it without getting all tangled
Step 1: Using kitchen twine, tie the legs together, looping the twine around the legs several times so that they are secure; finish with a knot.
Step 2: Twist each wing so that the wing tip tucks under the neck cavity of the bird. You may need to twist with a bit of force. The weight of the bird and the tension of the wing should keep it in place.
Step 3: Season and prepare the bird according to the recipe directions.
