Mango Menus' Thanksgiving Tips
- When buying a turkey, allow 1lb per person, including weight with all the bones.
- Make sure your oven is big enough –many HK ovens aren’t; if not order a pre-cooked one.
- Turkeys weighing 10-12 lbs take 10-14 hours to defrost, the larger ones can take a few days.
- Make Mango Menus' easy cranberry sauce – click here for recipe
- Getting stressed is a normal part of cooking a turkey. Mix a champagne cocktail before you start. This should help.
