Citrus Herb Brined Turkey


 
The holiday season calls for amazing food and plenty of it. I'm so thankful for good food and family to share it with. If you're in charge of dinner, the turkey needs to be the flavorful star of the evening. The best way I've found to get that amazing juicy flavor throughout is with a brine bath.

{Homemade} Cranberry Sauce

 
Okay, yes, it does take slightly more effort to make this cranberry sauce than opening a can, but only slightly and it will taste so much better!  These beauties are made without any granulated sugar so pile it on the turkey and then save some for your turkey sandwiches later :)
 
1 - 12 oz. bag fresh cranberries
2 cinnamon sticks
1 orange, rinsed and quartered
3/4 cup raw honey
 
All you have to do it throw it all in the slow cooker first thing thanksgiving morning on low.  Let it simmer for about 5 hours and fill your house with the smells of the holidays. After 5 hours turn the cooker up to high for the last hour so the juices will reduce and the berries will fall apart.  Remove orange pieces and cinnamon sticks when you're ready to serve.  That's it!  It's a little more involved than just using a can opener, but as in life, anything worthwhile takes some effort :)  Happy holidays everyone!  
 
Enjoy!
