Roasting a Turkey with Water
Have you heard of the turkey-roasting tip that suggests adding water to your roasting pan? We debunk that method and share better, easier, surefire ways to roast a turkey.
Should I Add Water When Roasting a Turkey?
No. We do not recommend adding water to the pan because it creates a steam and may steam-burn the turkey. The turkey will produce its own flavorful juices. After cooking, you can extend the turkey's juices with broth or wine, then add it to your gravy for extra flavor.
