Midget Whites are a heritage breed turkey that matures to between 10 & 20 lbs. In a 2008 blind taste test, eight Heritage Turkeys "kicked a Butterball's Butt."
In the study, reported in Mother Earth News by Don Schrider, 70 people compared one industrial and eight heritage varieties of turkey. The food professionals, chefs, food writers and food connoisseurs in attendance all had one thing in common - an interest in great food. The turkeys were scored based on flavor, texture, tenderness, aroma and appearance. The clear winner in this historical tasting was the midget white turkey. Reserve yours today for Easter Dinner.
