Each year, about 200 million pounds of turkey is tossed out during Thanksgiving week, according to the Natural Resources Defense Council.
And not to take the fun right out of your turkey dinner:
“People are starting to understand it’s not natural to grow turkeys up to 30 pounds,” said Ariane Daguin, co-founder and owner of D’Artagnan LLC, a wholesale and e-commerce food company in Union, New Jersey. “In general, that means they were penned up with no room to move around, and that’s why they’re fat like that.”
Hence the new TINY TURKEY moment we're having. 6 lb turkeys are all the rage.
You may have to change your entire Thanksgiving cooking schedule, instead of basting at halftime you may be already serving desert.
