This is a big moment in our relationship. I am about to impart to you my secret family Thanksgiving Day turkey recipe. This is a recipe that I have not strayed from for over 10 years and there is a reason… it’s amazing. Well, that’s a lie. About 5 years ago, I made wine-braised pheasant for the holiday and I just about had a mutiny on my hands. My Thanksgiving turkey recipe is that good that it filled my own loving family with inconsolable rage when I didn’t make it. Remember that with such power comes great responsibility. I am giving you this recipe as a gesture of my thankfulness for such a lovely and loyal readership. I also have laid out a few fun finds I have come across this year that will hopefully add a bit of fun to your festivities. With all that said, let’s get to the bird!
Apple Cider Turkey
NOTE: To make apple cider gravy, pour the remaining juice out of the roasting pan and into a medium saucepan. Add 1/2 cup of red wine and approximately 1 cup of flour. Stir of medium heat until smooth. Enjoy!
