Reviewed orange-tea-bourbon brined turkey with honey mustard butter

Nov 30, 2014 on

Ok, I have to give this a review! I NEVER, repeat NEVER, duplicate a turkey year after year. BUT, I have now done this brine three years in a row and I LOVE it. My only change has been to use Earl Grey tea instead of regular black since I want to play up orange notes in the brine. I also gave up on the honey-mustard butter and go with the chipotle-maple...

Great taste! However, I increased the amount of shrimp to 2lbs for so we had enough for the family. I did not double the amount of spice, though...only used 2 1/2 jalapenos, for example.

Made these last night for Father's Day. My husband was skeptical -- he wondered why we couldn't have REAL burgers. When I put the mayo on his bun he says, "I don't want the sauce." I told him to just TRY it. Well, he's a convert! Everyone loved them. I did make homemade brioche hamburger buns for the burgers, which were also a big hit. Becaus"

Num! I was the happy recipient of 1 1/2 lbs of the most beautiful baby artichokes thanks to the great growing expertise of Maple Rock Farms on Orcas Island, WA. I decided to use Giada's recipe..and it was dynamite. The only modification I made was to roll the artichokes in a bit of flour seasoned with fresh ground black pepper and a bit of orega"
