I’m afraid of the Thanksgiving turkey. It’s the essential dish and in case you destroy it, you destroy the entire meal. I did that when many, many, a few years in the past and have been terrified ever since. I’ve even had horrid nightmares. Final yr the turkey was good. I used to be so pleased with myself. I brined it to perfection. This yr I’d attempt one thing else.
The key to the right turkey? It have to be absolutely thawed. (And that may take some time. Greater than a day typically.) The opposite secret? Watch this video from Chowhound to discover ways to prepare dinner and season it to perfection. Yum! (Guess what? This recipe calls for lots of butter!) Martha Stewart has a wonderful brining recipe. I can’t discover the one which I used final yr however this one seems simply nearly as good. And really comparable.
