Turkey and Holiday Cooking Tips and FAQ

What is carry-over cooking and do I need to do this?

Answer:

Carry-over cooking is a term to describe the additional cooking a food goes through after it is pulled out of the oven. The turkey continues to cook approximately 10°F more after it is pulled out of the oven. It is best not to carve into the bird until it has rested for 10-15 minutes, since this will result in a loss of juices.
