It might be a little tricky to make, but I promise it will be a treat. So watch closely!
SHRAZZI WINE & CITRUS BRINE
Brining is a simple method of placing your bird in a salt water mixture for a few days before roasting. It’s definitely worth waiting for, as all the delicous juices from the brine absorb into the meat leaving it moist and succulent throughout. I’m basing my slow brining technique on Judy Roger’s of the Zuni Cafe Cookbook fame. Be sure to refrigerate your bird while brining! I somehow forgot to mention that in the video.
SHRAZZI DRY RUB with COINTREAU GLAZE
If you don’t feel like wet brining your turkey this year, but still want a moist, flavorful bird, you can try Judy Rodger’s 3 day dry rub. According to Russ Parsons of latimes.com, you can even dry rub frozen turkeys. Watch the video to learn how easy it really is!
CHOOSING YOUR BIRD
I discovered recently that Heritage Turkeys and Heirloom Turkeys are not the same thing. Check out this link for more info: http://www.ethicurean.com/2006/11/16/truth-in-advertising-heritage-vs-heirloom-turkeys/
Want a truly wild bird, but can’t afford an authentic Heritage? Better get out the gun…
SHRAZZI COINTREAU GRAVY
This gravy kicks your gravy’s butt. Don’t take my word for it! Try it for yourself. 😉
SHRAZZI GF WILD RICE STUFFING
We went wild over this gluten-free, dairy-free stuffing. I think you and your family will too… Happy Thanksgiving!
*I forgot to mention salt, but please don’t forget to use it!! Salt brings out the unique flavors of each and every dish.
*For a VEGETARIAN HOLIDAY MEAL serve the rice inside of a roasted acorn squash. Simply switch out chicken broth with vegetable broth, cut a few acorn squash in half (take out seeds), sprinkle with butter and brown sugar, then roast apx. 30-40 min on 375 until tender and caramelized on the cut side. Spoon wild rice stuffing into the center of the acorn squash and serve. It’s gorgeous and the turkey will not be missed!
