I hope everyone had a marvelous Thanksgiving! Several of you wrote me and told me you brined a turkey for the first time...congrats!! That's really exciting. I ended up brining my turkey again this year (thankfully without any of the disasters of last year) and it was so deliciously moist and flavorful. I am officially a brining convert.
