Well, if you have never brined your turkey, you will probably answer “No brine”. HOWEVER, we found out last year that we will never NOT brine our turkey again!! Can we say YUMMO??!!
We use Food Network’s Alton Brown’s recipe for making our turkey brine. Brining is merely soaking your turkey in a seasoned brine to increase moisture and flavor. It does that indeed. This year we are also making some sage butter to put between the skin and the meat for some additional flavor.
2 sticks butter
1/4 c. chopped sage
dash of salt and pepper
Mix ingredients and place pats of butter between skin and breast meat. Be gentle so the skin doesn’t get broken.
I am making my own vegetable stock for the brine, and oh how I wish you could smell the wonderful aroma!! It is just filling every nook and cranny of my home, and just screams out “The holidays are here!! The holidays are here!!”
So what’s cooking at your home?
Cleaning today here, and tomorrow pies, and prep for all of our other dishes! I will also be sharing an amazing recipe for a new twist on salsa!! You will LOVE this!!!
C’mon and get your “THANKS” on gals, and know that I love ya and am thankful for the blessing of YOU!!!
