I posted a link to a free Thanksgiving planner last week. This week I am going to give you the recipe I use for my turkey. I have been using this recipe for 8 years and I REFUSE to use any other recipe. When I think of the holidays, I think of this turkey and my mouth begins to water.
I skip soaking the turkey in the brine and I do not stuff my turkey. We simply soak the cheesecloth in the butter and wine and baste it every half hour. You can follow her other steps, but this is the method that we have enjoyed best through the years.
