The first thing I'm going to do is to tell you about the ingredients that are needed for basting your turkey. Of course the most important ingredient is your turkey if you're going to stuff him then have him already stuffed and ready before you start preparing him for basting. Now you can use a couple of different types of ingredients for basting your turkey the two basic things to remember is you want to keep your turkey moist and you also want to have the skin get crispy. So in order for that you need fat and moisture, for our fat we have butter which I'm going to show you how to melt so we can baste the turkey with a little bit of butter. The other ingredient to use would be chicken broth, you can also use turkey broth and you can use homemade can or boxed. If you don't feel like making homemade then I would recommend going with box instead of can because it keeps its flavored better. It's generally slightly higher quality. You don't get the taste from the can. The other thing that you can do is cover the turkey but we'll get into that later.
