Adelle Davis’ Perfect Turkey
Every Thanksgiving we receive requests for Adelle’ Slow Cooked Turkey Recipe, it can be found in Let’s Cook it Right Adele Davis’ best selling cookbook.
- Turn oven to 350 degrees.
- Stuff turkey, place in pan and put in oven.
- Bake one hour
- Using the oven thermometer, turn oven to 180 degrees (VERY important to have 180 degrees!!)
- Bake one hour per pound of turkey
But here’s a warning: Many newer model stoves have a feature that automatically turns the stove after 12 hours. In order to slow-cook your turkey, be sure you disable this feature and yes, a 22 lb turkey will be in your oven for 23 hours.
