Thanksgiving turkeys.... Marval brand?

Kathy H | Nov 19, 2003 09:01 AM

A couple of years ago, Cook's Illustrated did a comparison of most popular turkey brands and, surprisingly, Marval frozen turkey was highest rated. One year I made a Marval alongside an Empire Kosher and the Marval was far better - more moist and flavorful. But alas! I can't find Marval turkeys anywhere in Westchester (or Fairway, NY) or anywhere this year! Can't find anything online either to track them down. Anyone got any suggestions? Or any suggestions about a great turkey? (I've done the fresh, organic route (they were just ok) as well as the kosher route; the frozen and fresh route: Marval frozen - brined - was the very best ever.) My twenty guests will thank you for any help you can give!
