Turkey Brine

Star Anise

Lots of salt, star anise and peppercorns

The Lineup

It just needs some raw meat
Happy post-Thanksgiving! What a smorsgabord of food that graced our table. Good food, good wine and good people! So much to be thankful for. I am not quite sure if this turkey brine worked. I mean it's hard to tell. I did not notice that the meat was noticeably flavorful. I think it did however help keep the meat moist. I ended up overcooking the turkey a bit so while it was tougher than I wanted it to be, it was still moist and I think it was because of the brine. Check out the recipe on Bon Appetite.
