Holidays give you the opportunity to be opulent. While you scrounge and save throughout the year, the holidays are the time to shower people with gifts and to give, give, give, and make people happy. One of the best ways to do that is through food. When you serve delicious meals to people you love, you bring a smile to their faces and to their stomachs – it’s just something that you have to try this year – and the glitter turkey is just the way to do it.
Every year my family hosts Thanksgiving. We love food in my household, and we love trying new things. That’s why the idea of serving our family and honored guests a glitter turkey was the perfect addition to our holiday menu this year. Besides making sure the meat is juicy and tender, we figured it would be fun to make it appear beautiful from the inside – just as beautiful as it is tasty on the inside.
While people have invented numerous ways to serve turkey, a new trend that’s emerging is to slather the bird in glitter. But you have to make sure that the glitter you purchase for the task is up for the challenge as it needs to be edible and safe for all to enjoy. That’s why it is a good idea to turn to Reynolds Wrap – the brand that manufacturers aluminum foil and other food-safe products – to get what you need to serve glitter turkey for a holiday.
The good people working overtime this year in Reynolds Kitchen have come up with their Millennial-inspired Edible Turkey, which is sure to be a hit among the artsy people out there. These creative kitchen nuts are the same people who created the Flamin’ Hot Cheetos Turkey last year, which was a huge hit among young people hosting Thanksgiving for the first or second time – and some tried-and-true Thanksgiving nuts as well.
If you want to serve glitter turkey this year, follow Reynolds recipe. It’s sure to be delicious and a pleasant surprise for all who happen to be at your home this holiday season.
What exactly do you need to make a glitter turkey? Just follow this recipe!
- 1 teaspoon of Gum-Tex Tylose powder
- 4 tablespoons of boiling water
- 1 bottle of liquid pearl sheen or pearl dust
- Your choice of food coloring
You can purchase these items at your local craft store. And if you follow their emails, you can often get discounts to make it even better for you.
To make the glitter mix, Reynolds suggests:” Mix 1 teaspoon of Gum-Tex powder with 4 tablespoons of boiling water (added 1 tbsp. at a time) and your choice of food coloring. We recommend a combination of liquid food coloring and liquid pearl sheen for the brightest colors. TIP: You can quadruple the batter for a larger batch. You’ll need approximately 12 – 16 individual batches to fully cover a 16-pound turkey. Mix Gum-Tex powder, boiling water, and food coloring thoroughly with a rubber or silicone spatula. Mix until you get a paste-like consistency, approximately three – five minutes.”
