This protocol is part of the VERVE holiday drive to collect exotic off-the-shelf laboratory recipes. More details\u00a0here.Timing is everything when preparing a large meal. \u00a0Unfortunately, for the truly epic holiday meals \u2013 like Thanksgiving \u2013 there never seems to be enough oven space to ensure everything arrives at the table steaming. \u00a0Something has always cooled, collapsed, or coagulated before the turkey is ready to carve.This is where the autoclave comes in: \u00a0It\u2019s built to hold loads at around 250 degrees Fahrenheit, and since it subjects them to twice normal atmospheric pressure, it tends to cut cooking times in half. Autoclave cook-time for a small to mid-sized turkey should be less than 2 hours.Wanna impress the in-laws this year? \u00a0Bring home your favorite tabletop food-grade autoclave (not your Priorclave, though; those are research-grade autoclaves!) and put it to use on the big day.
