Thanksgiving Turkey With Apple Cider Brine
The centerpiece of any Thanksgiving is the Thanksgiving turkey. Brining is the professional cook’s secret to a moist and juicy roast turkey, and I’m going to let you in on my favorite brine recipe. This foolproof turkey brine includes apple cider, maple syrup and plenty of kosher salt – the result is a gorgeously golden crispy skin on top of a moist and succulent bird. You’ll need a large receptacle like a cooler or 5 gallon bucket for this one. And don’t forget to use those delectable pan drippings to make the best turkey sauce ever.
