Q: What size of turkey should I prepare for my holiday gathering?
A: Cook 1 lb of turkey per guest, or 1.5 lbs per guest to ensure turkey leftovers.
Some of Granny’s whole turkeys come with the Handi Clamp attached to the drumsticks - similar to traditional trussing or tying a turkey’s legs with butcher twine.
The clamp is made from heat-resistant plastic that is perfectly safe to leave on during cooking. It keeps the drumsticks close to the turkey and ensures even heat for cooking. To remove the Handi Clamp, unhook the tips of the drumsticks from the loops and pull the rest of the clamp out of the bird. If stuffing the turkey, remove the drumsticks from the loops of the clamp and then put them back in the loops once the stuffing is in place.
