Salt Brined Turkey

Have you ever brined a turkey with just salt and no liquid? The salt causes the moisture to leave the skin. During baking it makes the most delicious crispy skin that seals in the moisture in the turkey. It may not look as pretty as an unsalted turkey but once you taste it you won’t care.

  1. My mother always used to brine her turkey, as did my grandmother, and people always wanted to know why hers were so juicy and flavourful. She never let on about the brining!


  2. Sometimes less is more. It’s amazing how a simple salting (and peppering) goes a long way. Wishing you all a Happy Thanksgiving next weekend!
