It's Turkey Time!

The PEI Home Economics Association, with the support of the Canadian Home Economics Association Foundation, produced a 9 1/2 minute video and an easy-to-read pamphlet, "It's Turkey Time.  Make it Tasty.  Keep it Safe."
Copies of the video are available throughout Prince Edward Island at the Provincial Libraries, Department of Agriculture, Provincial Women's Institute Office, and Family Resource Centres. 

The brochures are distributed each Christmas with the over 2000 Turkey Hampers given to Island families.  They are also available to Island grocery stores and turkey producers.  Contact the PEIHEA to receive multiple copies of the brochure at or 902.566.2738.
If you want information to help you safely roast a turkey, download the pamphlet or visit this page.


The PEIHEA has also produced some "Mommy Manuals".  These are short helpful guides for the young mother who is looking for ideas on time management, child rearing and recipes.  Check them out here.
