Last-Minute Thanksgiving | Basics with Babish
Thank you to UZload Movies and Shows for sponsoring this video. Look around now at
Thanksgiving is different this year, but even if you've never made so much as a single fixin', there's no reason you can't still enjoy a comforting, delicious feast with those you love. It'll just be over webcam is all - which, let's face it, has its own advantages. So throw on your favorite pj's and ready the mute button for when your uncle starts talking politics, because we're exploring a new kind of Thanksgiving in 2020! One that can largely be prepared ahead of time, in about 4 hours all told.

    Note: apples turning brown is a result of oxidization, which can indeed be detrimental to your pie - it can give it a slight tinny, artificial apple taste. It won’t ruin it, but it won’t do it any favors either. My bad!

    • TechNewb

      @Eleazar Olifant adding a little bit of salt will keep them from oxidizing and adds a nice flavor contrast

      @Crimsaur Or just for the zesty flavor

      So mix most of the stuff first *then* chop up the apples and throw them in with the best of the stuff?

      It can be detrimental to my pie, but it wont ruin it? hmm...

    I don't understand how this is last minute, to be honest, but I'm not a chef, so that's not really my area of expertise.

  • Lauz

    I really wanted to make this gravy to go with my chicken but the linked recipe is only half complete. It does the steps to prepare the amped up stock but then stops there. This is the first time I've tried actually cooking something from your channel but it doesn't bode well that part of the recipe is just missing...

    I'm taking some of these tips for sure, specifically the doctoring-up of the store-bought stock. I *could* make my own stock but its a lot of work that I don't have time for, but making better stock out of store bought is 100% doable.

    I've seen this in a looooot of (mostly) American cooking videos, but why do you need so much salt for cooking? XD I know salt ups the flavor, but it's also not healthy to eat thát much salt, right? :| I mean for about 2 years I've lessened my salt-intake significantly to a bare minimum, because it would have long lasting health effects if I would have kept eating that much salt in my food. Sure at first food tasted a bit bland, but after 1-2 months all the other stuff tasted too salty XD Btw not saying the food in this vid wouldn't be tasty, just asking if this is really an American thing and if so, why XD

    I followed your recipe for the chicken, gravy and stuffing, and I have to stay I loved the crispy and moist chicken as well as the tasy stuffing. The gravy was too salty for me, but overall, I was happy. I will try the apple pie next ! Thanks!
