Episode 9: Thanksgiving! Turkey! The meat thermometer! Flat racks! Cranberry Sauce! Lots of weird relatives!
Interesting episode. Yet another item I probably won't ever cook, but I liked the episode. They did a bit on the original Thanksgiving dinner, and how Abe Lincoln made Thanksgiving an official holiday after much prodding from Sarah Josepha Hale.
Some of the comedy bits were good, like Alton's "aunt".
I noticed that Alton definitely says do not put stuffing in the turkey before cooking it. Too dangerous! He instead puts in some herbs and some roasted apples and onions. Interesting idea. I'll mention it to my stepmom to see her reaction
. (She makes amazing meals. Truly a talented cook. But she's also very old-fashioned about things like stuffing.)
