Cucina Pasta-bilities - The Perfect Thanksgiving Turkey November 16 2016, 0 Comments
If you're in a rush to buy a turkey the night before Thanksgiving and need a quick recipe - no worries! We have the perfect Zesty Rosemary Dry Brine!
We picked up a fresh turkey from Whole Foods Market
Then prepared our brine:
- 1 tsp Orange Zest
- 3 tbsp salt
- 3 sprigs Rosemary, chopped
After rubbing the turkey, we kept it overnight, uncovered in the refrigerator. Tip: leaving the turkey uncovered helps dry out the skin, which makes it extra crispy!
Turkey time! Take the turkey out at least 2 hours before cooking it, because the turkey should be at a warm temp before cooking!
Insert a meat thermometer and begin the roast and cook until the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees!
The Zesty Rosemary Turkey was juicy and delicious, with a refreshing zest. Best of all: it was hassle free!
