Turkey Day hotlines

I took the bus to work today so my wife can pick me up tonight after work on the way to the Third Day concert at Cintas Center. (Not too late to get tickets.) Anyway, riding the bus allows me to read Newsweek. That allows me to come across some handy hotline numbers for busy cooks growing nervous as Thanksgiving approaches. Relax. You don’t have to do it on your own. Keep these numbers handy as the big day approaches:

-Butterball Hotline (Nov. 1-Dec. 31; 8 a.m.-8 p.m. 800-BUTTERBALL): Everything you want to know about turkey roasting.
-Crisco Pie Hotline (Through Dec. 31; 8 a.m.-8 p.m. 877-367-7438): Pie baking tips.
-Ocean Spray (year-round; 9 a.m.-4 p.m.): 800-662-3263. Cranberry sauce tips.
-USDA Hotline (year-round; 10 a.m.-4 p.m.; 888-674-6854): Questions about poultry and meat safety, etc.

Thanks for the tips Bill. I just want to know what else they're going to tell you to do with cranberry sauce. In my family, we're big fans of keeping it in the "can" shape. If you slice it up or try to get to fancy, my relatives won't recognize it, and then they don't eat any of it! I kid you not...
