GIVE TURKEY THE PEKING DUCK TREATMENT
Peking duck's combination of juicy meat and crispy, flavorful skin is pretty much what you want for your Thanksgiving turkey, too. Steaming the bird before roasting helps to shrink-wrap the skin around the bird, helping it turn extra juicy. The step even cuts down on turkey roasting time, so you'll have more oven space for your side dishes. Finishing the turkey with a ginger-spiced glaze gives the mild-flavored meat amazing flavor, and a lacquered coating worthy of Peking duck.
