Jesse Tyler Ferguson cooks it up with Martha Stewart

By Greg Hernandez Fabulous Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Emmy nominee for ABC’s ‘Modern Family,’ was the guest on Martha Stewart’s show today. He took part in a lesson on Turkey 101 when he prepared the Perfect Roast Turkey just in time for his very first solo attempt at Thanksgiving dinner in his new house.

Here are some of the exchanges between Jesse and Martha:

On Jesse Tyler Ferguson’s first Thanksgiving dinner:

Jesse Tyler Ferguson: I did do it with my sister, we made Thanksgiving dinner a few years ago and I did not do a good job.

Martha Stewart: Was your turkey insipid?

JTF: Yes, amongst other things. It was very dry. I tried brining. It was in a trash bag at one point. It was a disaster.

MS: Well the whole thing about brining is, see how we have this large container? You also have to make sure if it’s not cold outside where you are, you put the turkey outside and there’s no vermin that can steal the turkey in the nighttime. You have to make sure your refrigerator will hold the container. A lot of people go through the whole thing of brining and then they look in their refrigerator and there’s no way this is going to fit in their refrigerator. It’s a big problem.

JTF: And apparently you’re supposed to also defrost the turkey before which I did not know. So Thanksgiving dinner actually happened four days later.
