Q. How Do I Get a Nice Golden Brown Skin on My Turkey?



A. The key to getting a brown skin on your turkey is to ensure the skin is completely dry before placing it in the oven. Excess moisture creates steam and moisture in the oven which will prevent the skin from browning. For the last 30 minutes of roasting, drizzle they turkey with olive oil or ghee for a beautiful, even skin.
