Brining delivers a turkey that is juicy and tender. This recipe includes apple cider, imbuing the meat with a wonderful flavor. Similar to marinating, brining is an overnight process. Be sure your turkey is completely thawed before placing it in the brine. Remove turkey from the brine and bring to room temperature before roasting. For juicier breast meat, roast your turkey unstuffed.
Thanksgiving is a celebration of gratitude and family traditions. Growing up in upstate New York, my family always gathered apples from our small backyard orchard in anticipation of the holiday feast. We’d pick the best of our crop—McIntosh, Pippin, Northern Spy—and store them in our cool pantry. When holiday baking began, we’d uncover our apples, still crisp and bright, and create recipes that highlighted them as a star ingredient. Apples fit deliciously into a traditional Gluten-Free Thanksgiving menu.
