How to cook a turkey

Special to the Herald-News


We asked our future chefs (under 6-years-old) how they would cook the Thanksgiving turkey and we received some very interesting answers.

These answers were submitted by parents on our Facebook page and from the Metcalfe County Head Start/Early Head Start children.
