Raw Turkey


We brined the turkey. Above it's being prepped in brine--giving anybody any plot ideas for horror or mystery stories?! What did you think that was when you first saw it? Did anybody else brine their turkey? (Those of my readers who celebrate Thanksgiving--or anybody who's cooked a turkey.)

Nope, it's a totally new concept to me. And I'm not telling what I first thought it was. I've been too well brought-up. (Everyone should put up a post like this once in a while.)

Thanks, Dave--and thanks for letting me know that it was okay for putting up an-um--unusual, perhaps off-color post?

Brining is easy and makes the turkey moist and flavorful.

We haven't brined our turkeys before, but we talked about doing it this year because it's supposed to be delicious. Once again, though, we went with the same old. It works, after all, so why change?

We brined a turkey breast this year. Dozens of recipes on the Internet.
Perhaps we chose the wrong recipe. I went for easiest. We thought the turkey was very tender but a tad salty.
Back next year to my mother's old method of greasing a piece of old sheet and laying it atop the turkey.

Well, yeah, if the turkeys good, it's good, Caryn! We just brined the turkey because that's how we've done it before.

Oops Kathy--and I was the one who suggested brining the durn fool thing! I wonder if too much salt soaks in, if it's just a turkey breast?

Yikes! I thought it was a human head or something. I cold only guess that you were posting an article about how to write horror stories.

Happy trails.

Yeah, can you tell, Swu, that I'm a horror writer?!
