Turkey prices soar: How to have an affordable Thanksgiving dinner in 2022

Seeing that Turkey prices are rising this year, here's how you can have an affordable Thanksgiving.

Avian flu outbreaks and inflation’s impact on fuel, feed and labor costs have contributed to higher turkey prices.

Whole frozen turkey prices have surged from $1.15 per pound at this time in 2021 to $1.47 per pound this week.

This is almost a 28% increase per pound.

Experts recommend other animals like guinea hen, pheasants and ducks as replacement birds.

You can roast duck with baked vegetables as one alternative to turkey.

You can also take this opportunity to revamp your Thanksgiving menu to honor Native Americans.

Creating a decolonized menu can focus on more foods traditionally prepared and served by Native Americans.

You can also add foods frequently prepared by tribes in the region where you’re living.

One of the best options is to focus on plant-based dishes for Thanksgiving.
