With thanksgiving around the corner (already?!) I decided to give you guys my secret for a yummy and juicy turkey, the best white meat you will ever have is in the secret! A family heirloom of my moms.
The secret to a tender & juicy turkey is to get it drunk! (You can also do this with chicken)
- Hand towel (non colored)
- White Wine (I get the big jugs of cheap Rhine stuff)
- A Fresh Turkey
2 days before: Place your turkey in a roasting pan; (take out any giblets) Pour white wine (about 1 cup) into the cavity of the turkey, place hand towel over turkey and soak with wine. (I use cheap Rhine wine) Refrigerate
Next day: Flip turkey over place same towel over that side of the turkey re-soak towel with wine
Day of cooking: Take out the turkey and cook as you normally do. (Follow timing on package directions)
Enjoy your juicy tender turkey! And have a wonderful Thanksgiving!!
