Do we start with the fact that there’s a new video on WGC today or that I’m changing the game with this easy homemade turkey brine?!
First, happy November. This will serve as your formal announcement that What’s Gaby Cooking is turning into Thanksgiving central for the next few weeks. I’ll have everything you need when it comes to Thanksgiving recipes – from the tools you’ll need to make sure to buy before the big feast to a step by step / day by day prep timeline for the week of Thanksgiving. First… let’s start with the most important part of the meal according to my husband… the turkey.
Who here has brined a turkey before?! If you haven’t, prepare for your life to change. It’s everything and this year’s recipe is beyond. It’s loaded with all sorts of aromatics but the hero of the recipe is the Kikkoman® Soy Sauce. Wait till you see the color it gives the bird – stunning doesn’t even come close to describing it. It infuses the bird with all the flavor you could possibly want! Just a few tips and tricks. Make sure your bird is thawed before you start. Grab a large vessel that will fit the liquid brine mixture and the bird AND that fits into your fridge. Let it brine for about 24 hours too! The longer it sits in the brine the more flavor!!! Get ready guys… THANKSGIVING this year is going to be insane.
