Holiday Tips & Entertaining
Want to brine a turkey but your fridge is full of delicious pies and salads? Simply place the turkey and brine bag in an ice-filled cooler to free up space until it's time for roasting.
Using a turkey rub? Don't just rub the outside of your turkey. Carefully lift the skin of the turkey to separate it from the meat and rub the meat as well. You'll get a lot more flavor. It can get messy, so you'll want to use gloves.
Give your house a wonderful aroma for guests by using a slow cooker to keep cider warm.
Try mulling spices in other beverages like tea, coffee, fruit juice (cranberry, pineapple, mixed fruit blends), hot chocolate or dry red wine (cabernet sauvignon) for a flavorful twist.
Have leftover cider? Don't worry. Cider becomes more flavorful the longer it sits. Simply refrigerate it and reheat it later.
