Can I use the marinade to baste the turkey?
After raw turkey, or chicken, has marinated in any kind of liquid, that liquid is as unsafe to consume as raw meat is. However, you can baste the turkey/chicken with the marinade from the very beginning of the cooking process, because the marinade will get cooked through along with the turkey and the cooking process will destroy any harmful bacteria. To use the marinade later in the cooking process or as a sauce, you must boil it vigorously for at least 5 full minutes. Then use a CLEAN basting spoon or brush to apply it to the chicken. If you don't feel safe using the marinade you can also remove 1/4 cup of marinade prior to pouring over the raw meat and reserve for later use.
