True Liberty® Bags Quick Tip

Cooking in a True Liberty® bag will cut your cooking time down significantly and keep your turkey nice and moist!

We at True Liberty® cook our turkey breast side down so that the white meat bubbles in juices while it bakes.  Either way, the bag is going to act like a convection oven, trapping the moisture and goodness inside. With everything in the bag, clean-up is easy as pick it up and throw it out!  Or throw the juice and bones into a fresh bag and freeze for turkey soup or a new creation on another day.
