Are turkeys causing us to waste gas?

Posted in General by testing in London on December 26, 2006

Staying with the seasonal theme of testing food preparation techniques is this story from United Press in London. British Gas says gas consumption rises about 15 percent during the Christmas holiday, likely due to the cooking of turkeys.

The company said consumers usually cook a turkey for an average five hours. If every turkey bought in Britain in December, roughly 10 million, were overcooked by two hours it would waste more than a million pounds in household energy.

British Gas suggests testing is the turkey is cooked by inserting a skewer into the thickest part of the thigh. If the juices run clear, the bird is cooked. By not overcooking the turkey and by not producing greenhouse gases, using yesterday’s sprout preparation method, we can each do a bit more for a better enivronment.
