Turns out, there's no historical indication that the original Thanksgiving meal (at Plymouth colony) centered around the turkey. However, by the turn of the 19th century, turkey became a popular dish to serve on special occasions for a few reasons: 1) There was no shortage of turkeys. Some estimate there were at least 10 million turkeys in America at the time. 2) A single turkey was typically big enough to feed an entire family. 3) Turkeys on a family farm were nearly always available to slaughter, unlike cows and hens (producing milk and eggs throughout their lives). This Classic Roasted Turkey is perfect! It's simple, flavorful, juicy, and is sure to please those around your table.
