Regarding turkeys at Trader Joe's. What is the difference between their "regular" pre brined turkyey, and the "Kosher" pre brined turkey.

Asked by josie (28363points) 4 weeks ago

I usually get a turkey at TJ’s. But they also sell Kosher turkeys. I sort of understand the notion of Kosher, but how exactly might that effect the quality of the turkey. Or is it merely ceremonial?

1) Kosher killed, meaning instantaneous for the bird.

2) examined by the mashgiach (Kosher inspector) to make sure no bad or blemished areas, or diseased areas on the bird, So probably a slightly better quality of turkey meat.

What’s the difference in price?

1.99 vs 2.99 per pound.

I would just go with the pre-brined if you have no need for Kosher. The Kosher is mainly for people who keep kosher and may be a little tastier but I doubt the difference would be noticeable.
