Do you have your turkey yet? When you get it, give yourself a couple days to brine your bird in this flavorful brining recipe. Brining allows salt, sugar and the flavors of the brine to soak into your turkey, giving it needed moisture and seasoning.
I have never been a fan of ham. Spiral-sliced, country-style, Black Forest,...doesn't much matter. My take away is almost always . Being the type that always likes to DIY, I tinkered with my version of ham until it came out positively addictive
Cured meats are expensive and packed with chemical insanity. My feralized version is cheap and takes maybe five minutes hands-on. (Plus ten days of so of curing.) I'm not sure if it worked yet, but if it doesn't you can learn from my mistakes!
