Holiday Turkey with Cranberry-Beer Dressing Recipe

Historically, brine is a solution of sea salt, to which is added sugar and aromatics.

Master chefs on large estates created these brine solutions to preserve meats for extended periods, much like villagers did with smoked meats or salted fish. Brining awakens flavors in turkey, and allows spices to penetrate the fleshy parts of the bird. As an old-fashioned Thanksgiving tradition, brining the bird in cranberry and beer is a treat that will gain a memorable place in the halls of Holiday lore.

Mythical poster at The LTS Good for What Ales You Beer Journal. Loves good beer. Hates same old, same old. Muses that Bud and Miller might as well be brewed in urinals. Drinks lagers too, if they are complex and interesting.
