Deep-frying a turkey isn't just fashionable and dangerous, it's ecologically sensitive, too. As West Seattle Blog reminded readers earlier this week, no other cooking method produces waste products that can be turned into gallons of biodiesel. (What? Did you think those 4 gallons of canola oil were going to keep until next year? If so, I pity your 2010 guests.)
The blog linked to a press release from King County and General Biodiesel announcing the location of their two 24-hour dropoff spots in the Seattle area:
Mercer Island Presbyterian Church, 3605 84th Ave. S.E., Mercer Island (collection tank located just inside the north driveway)
General Biodiesel office, 4034 West Marginal Way S.W.
And those of you driving biodiesel cars who find yourselves struck with cranberry sauce yearnings every time you turn the key should give thanks to all the ambitious cooks who powered your car in search of a bronzed, perfectly moist bird.
