My Favorite Brine of All Time! by The Pioneer Woman

I wanted to bring this old post to the forefront, as it’s my favorite turkey brine recipe ever, and because it’s—gulp—the week before Thanksgiving! What just happened?

We still have Halloween candy in our house. (Not sure how that’s possible.)

Be sure to read through all the instructions in the link below…but here are the highlights (in case you’re a skimmer, which I most certainly am!)

* Check your turkey label. Many frozen turkeys are injected with a sodium solution (essentially pre-brined), and it’s best if you can use a turkey that has not been pre-brined. I usually try to find a fresh turkey or an organic frozen one. (Though if you rinse thoroughly, you’ll probably be fine no matter what!)

* Add enough water to the brining bag or vessel to submerge the turkey.

* After brining, thoroughly rinse the turkey then submerge it in clean cold water for 15-20 minutes, then rinse again.

* Your turkey is gonna be magificent!

I mean, of all the place to lurk on the internet, Deb. I am truly a bore — possibly to everyone but people who love to cook.

But these posts! Forget the blogs, forget the cookbooks — just kidding, please do not do either — this is how people really eat, or aspire to at the ambitious start of their week, and I can’t help but take mental notes. One of the things that comes up frequently is something called a “sweet potato taco,” and it got stuck in my head because we like sweet potatoes, we like tacos… Maybe I should try my hand at them! I envisioned cubes of sweet potatoes roasted with so much spice, it almost forms a crust, and then something with black beans, and a bright, acidic finish to cut through the carb-starch-carbiness of it. The first time I made it, I threw them together and, because this is the year 2018, tossed a picture of our dinner onto Instagram Stories* and it turns out, a lot of people wanted the recipe. I promised to write it up good and proper one day, “one day” in Deb-ese is 5 weeks minimum, and that brings us up to today.
