Deep Fried Turkey

fried turkeyDoes anything say “Merry Christmas from South Austin” like a deep fried turkey? I’ve lived here most of my adult life and so sometimes I require the insights of the newly-immigrated to open my eyes to the delights of our customs and cuisine. Deep-frying turkey is popular all over these southern states but I would never have considered doing it myself. I have specific Christmas traditions which I can trace back five generations. They no longer include my great grandmother’s blood pudding and they certainly do not involve frying a turkey.

AJ, however, is eager to embrace the quaint customs of his adopted land. Besides it requires buying new equipment and playing with fire. How could I say no? And the taste? Crispy on the outside and moist on the inside. Bonus. Now we have the equipment to make fish ‘n chips.

    It’s a wonderful tribute to somebody’s tidiness of execution that the equipment still looks completely new, even after use. I’ve never seen *that* before!
