Description

Turkey


1 turkey (12 to 14 lbs), thawed if frozen
3 medium onions, peeled and roughly chopped
2 medium carrots, peeled and roughly chopped
2 celery stalks, roughly chopped
3 Tbsp butter, at room temp
6 sprigs thyme

1/ Rinse turkey inside and out, and remove neck and giblets. Place turkey in a large container, and fill with enough water to cover the bird completely. Remove bird, add brine ingredients to water, and stir until salt has dissolved. Place turkey in brine, and chill for at least 12 hours but not more than 24.

2/ Remove turkey from brine and discard liquid. Rinse and dry turkey, then put it in the refrigerator uncovered for 8 to 12 hours.

3/ Preheat oven to 400°F. Combine a third of the onions, carrots, and celery with 1 tablespoon butter, and place in the cavity of the turkey. Tie legs together with kitchen twine. Scatter remaining vegetables and thyme in a heavy roasting pan, and pour 1 cup water over vegetables.

4/ Smear remaining butter over bird. Place bird, breast side down, in pan with vegetables, and roast for 45 minutes. Turn bird on its side (thigh side up) and baste. Roast 15 minutes more. Turn to the other side and baste again. Add 1 cup water to the pan, and roast another 15 minutes. Baste and turn bird so the breast faces up; roast 45 minutes, or until meat registers 160°F on a meat thermometer.

5/ Remove turkey from oven, and let rest 20 minutes before carving.

This is a beautiful rich palette.
I love it & that image puts the growls
in my belly. Thank you bb for sharing
this recipe with us. To brine a turkey seems
to be very popular now-a-days.
