My Favorite Turkey Brine | The Pioneer Woman Cooks | Ree Drummond

AHHHH, its that time of year, time to make plans for our Thanksgiving dinner. I love to make things special for my family and love to try new recipes. My family is very traditional though so some old family favorites will always be included ( green bean casserole) I have wanted to try brining a turkey for several years now so this year I am going to give Pioneer Woman's recipe a try.

In years past we have smoked our own turkey, roasted it the traditional way and even deep fried it in a turkey fryer (very tasty and moist), but I have never tried marinating my turkey in a brine. I have heard from friends that have tried it and they all tell me that it is wonderful.

This year I am feeling a bit festive so I'm going to give this a try.
I love Pioneer Woman and her recipes, I have her cookbook and use it often. ( I collect cookbooks) I also go to her website often for inspiration.

Hi Susan
I too have heard that brining a turkey or chicken makes them so delicious. My pastors wife gave a recipe on her blog that I want to try.
I also enjoy Pioneer Woman's blog, and am still waiting to get her cookbook. I also collect cookbooks, especially Southern Living, and really like the cookbooks written by churches, some of the best recipes ever.
I truly have the sweetest husband, and like you said about your dh in a comment , if I mention something I want or somewhere I want to go, he will do his best to make it happen. ~smile~ I think you and I are two blessed women, Susan.~smile~
Good luck with brining your turkey.

Thank you for your friendship,
