It’s time to start thinking about the Thanksgiving menu! Mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, roasted vegetables, or green bean casserole…? And of course, the center piece of the entire meal needs a bit of attention too. Brining is the TLC your turkey needs. Brining prevents the dreaded dry stringy turkey that we all dread, adds a subtle flavor to the meat, and makes for extra delicious gravy. Give this lightly sweet, citrus and herb brine a try this year and I’m sure your turkey will be met with rave reviews.
