In 1970, turkey consumption in the US hovered at about 8.2 pounds of turkey per person. Since then, turkey has gained popularity as a mild-flavored source of lean protein. Consumption has nearly doubled since then, and in 2020 the US population ate 16 pounds of turkey per capita. Turkey can be easily swapped into a chicken recipe, but with its slightly gamier taste, it can stand on its own against vibrant palates. Look for turkey specialties in strongly-flavored dishes, served with thing like Mexican mole sauces or grilled into burger-like patties in Israel, seasoned with spices and fresh herbs. If you want to experiment with whole turkey—or go Henry VIII and roast an entire turkey leg just for you—we have the spices and herbs that work best with turkey. We also put together our favorite seasoning blends for turkey so you can venture into the global aspects of turkey without worry!
