Thanksgiving dilemma

Diane in Bexley | | Oct 16, 2007 07:46 AM

We are trying to accommodate all the diversity issues in our family of 9 participants: DD is kosher, would eat turkey if we buy kosher one; nephew won't eat turkey, he only eats fish or VERY low fat foods (don't go there LOL!). Probably will buy kosher turkey, but only ones available in our area are frozen and it has been YEARS since I made a frozen turkey. Been advised NOT to brine a kosher turkey as the koshering process (soaking & salting) essentially brines it. Any tips/tricks for ensuring a juicy, flavorful frozen turkey? I will probably buy a 10-12 lb. one. Looking for appetizer or side dish recipes that don't contain butter or dairy and are low fat to try to accommodate DD and nephew as much as possible.Thanks in advance!
