How To Brine A Turkey For Thanksgiving Dinner [VIDEO]
I am a fairly new cook when it comes to things other that side dishes and desserts. The meats I’m learning about as I go. I know there are lots of ways to fix turkeys and everyone has their own favorite recipe, but if you’re new to this like me maybe you need a little help. This is one way to brine a turkey for your Thanksgiving get together.
You will need a big tub that the turkey plus some water will fit into. You will also need some sugar, salt, ice cubes and bourbon (I’m liking this recipe already).
So what does it mean to brine exactly? It’s a salt water solution that breaks down the connective tissue and adds flavor. The salt makes the water or moisture infuse into the turkey making it juicy. So I suggest to brine your turkey so you don’t have cardboard for lunch!
