Perfect Turkey

A perfectly seasoned and juicy turkey. Cooks Illustrated also recommends letting the turkey sit in the fridge for an hour after rinsing off the brine…helps the skin to brown and crisp up.

Ingredients
1 (18 pound) whole turkey, neck and giblets removed
2 cups kosher salt
1/2 cup butter, melted
2 large onions, peeled and chopped
4 carrots, peeled and chopped
4 stalks celery, chopped
2 sprigs fresh thyme
1 bay leaf
1 cup dry white wine

Directions
1.Rub the turkey inside and out with the kosher salt. Place the bird in a large stock pot, and cover with cold water. Place in the refrigerator, and allow the turkey to soak in the salt and water mixture 12 hours, or overnight.
2.Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Thoroughly rinse the turkey, and discard the brine mixture.
3.Brush the turkey with 1/2 the melted butter. Place breast side down on a roasting rack in a shallow roasting pan. Stuff the turkey cavity with 1 onion, 1/2 the carrots, 1/2 the celery, 1 sprig of thyme, and the bay leaf. Scatter the remaining vegetables and thyme around the bottom of the roasting pan, and cover with the white wine.
4.Roast uncovered 3 1/2 to 4 hours in the preheated oven, until the internal temperature of the thigh reaches 180 degrees F (85 degrees C). Carefully turn the turkey breast side up about 2/3 through the roasting time, and brush with the remaining butter. Allow the bird to stand about 30 minutes before carving.

Here’s some tips to help you have the best experience when ordering online.
1. ORDER EARLY (Don’t wait for this email to place your order!!)
2. COMPLETE YOUR ORDER…you can lose an item in your cart if someone else orders and completes the order ahead of you.
3. LOOK FOR A CONFIRMATION EMAIL…if you don’t receive an email showing your completed order, your order was not placed and you’ll need to place it again.
4. MULTIPLE ORDERS…placing multiple orders aren’t a problem, they will be grouped together on our order form with one total.
5. ARRIVE EARLY TO PICK UP…We usually have extras from various farmers/vendors and maybe a Farmer of the Day. Arrive at 10am for a better selection and less wait time.
6. BRING GROCERY BAGS…Don’t forget to bring your reusable grocery bags to pack your order.
7. EMAIL THE GROWER…each farmer lists their own products and tries to make the listings as clear as possible so that you know what you are buying, but sometimes it may need more explanation. You are buying directly from the farmer/vendor and they are more than happy to speak to you to answer any questions.

Welcome Bradley’s Pumpkin Patch to TCH. They’ve been growing heirloom cooking pumpkins for over 17 years. The seeds have been passed down locally for over a hundred years making these pumpkins very high in nutrients. Come by on Saturday to meet Karen Weaver (Bradley’s mom) to pick up a pumpkin and some tips on pumpkin cooking.

BeeBerry Farms has some beautiful Turnip, Radish and Kale greens listed online this week. They are also selling quail eggs. A lot of nutrition in a little package. I boiled mine for 5 min, so good and my kids loved them.
