We’ve all seen it happen: The amateur turkey carver grabs hold of two big knives and goes to town, mangling the poor bird in the process. Nothing can potentially sour a meal quite like eviscerated meat scattered on your plate.
So don’t let that happen. The folks at PureWow have provided this handy-dandy guide to carving the Thanksgiving bird, and they’ve got it down to a science. Who knew that you could so easily get the breast, thighs, wings and legs so neatly off the bone?
Seriously, they make it look like the simplest task in the world. Go ahead, impress your family this year. The only con is that they’ll probably get you to do it every Thanksgiving going forward.
