Testers’ Comments: Koshering—a process whereby the bird is packed in kosher salt and undergoes multiple cold-water rinses—kept this supermarket turkey “moist and meaty” with a “nice poultry flavor,” and offered white meat that was “buttery.” It had a “dense” texture that was “moist but not squishy.” “The way I expect turkey to taste,” declared one happy taster.
