Thanksgiving is really my favorite holiday. I just wish I had family here but I’m thankful Chad will be home and Vince is here and Speck is here and doing better. This time of year, life seems to pass a big more slowly and there’s more time to sit and visit and enjoy our time. And, Thanksgiving foods are so good!
This afternoon was time to put the turkey on to brine. I’m doing a dry brine for the first time this year.
After the turkey was rinsed and dried, all the “surprises” were removed, I coated the skin in a mixture of chopped fresh rosemaray and kosher salt.
Then she went into two trash bags.
A few times a day between now and Thursday, I’ll massage the turkey, drain the cooler and add more ice as needed. Hungry for turkey yet?
