A holiday hot line for talking turkey

How long to cook the Thanksgiving or Christmas turkey is an often-asked question, by both new and experienced cooks. Cooks may also be confused about carving, how to make lump-free gravy, or what to use for stuffing.

Once again Butterball is sponsoring a toll-free number for cooks with questions about fixing the holiday turkey.

The Butterball Turkey Talk-Line number is 1-800-323-4848. The new, expanded hours of Talk-Line, staffed by professional home economists, will make the help of professionals more readily available than before.

Beginning Nov. 7, the Talk-Line will be open Monday to Friday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. central standard time.

In addition, Talk-Line will be open the two weekends before Thanksgiving, Nov. 11 and 12, and 18 and 19, from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. On Thanksgiving Day and Dec. 24 the line will only be open until 6 p.m.
