Turkey to Be Thursday

Hopefully if you haven’t already, you are about to enjoy your thanksgiving dinner.  Turkey will be the center piece of many of our tables.  Well this year I am happy to say my honey volunteered to cook the turkey.  So to prepare a lot of research was done.  As he is or should I say was a #turkeyvirgin.  After eating the delicious turkey I was able to sneak a few tips to help you. brine-turkey

  1. Brine It:  In a large pot bring to boil the following ingredients.  Brown sugar, salt, lemon zest, tangerine zest, 8 cloves of garlic, green peppers, yellow peppers and red peppers in 13 cups of water.  After it boils, cool it down using ice.  Once it is cooled submerge your turkey and let it sit for at least 1 day.
  2. Season and Bag It:  Rub the turkey with oregano, sazon, butter and adobo. Fill the cavity with any peppers you like and onions.  Place your seasoned turkey in side an oven roasting bag and place it back in the fridge for another day.

3.  Cook It:  The next morning pop it in the oven for 4 hours at 350.


Now  it’s a late to start this as Thanksgiving is more than half done and this process takes about 2 days prep time.  So remember you saw this blog and come back and read it again if you are having turkey for Christmas!!!  Alright already, stop reading and go eat or have a piece of pie!!!!!!
