Q. How Do I Remove Pin Feathers from My Turkey?



A. Pin feathers can be tricky to pull out of a raw bird. Put the tweezers down because the easiest way to do it is to use a blowtorch. Simply place the bird on a large, clear, non-flammable surface and use circular motions to singe the pin feathers off. Keep the torch a good distance away from the bird or you risk burning the skin.
