Several years ago I helped my Mama brine a turkey. I loved the flavor, so I always do that now. This year I mixed my brine and poured it over my turkey in an oven bag. Perhaps the solution was too hot or maybe I put too much pressure on the bag as I was adjusting it in the roasting pan before I popped it in the fridge for the night, but either way the bag burst. There was brine (that had been on my raw turkey) everywhere! I had to wash the counters, everything on them, stove top, the cabinet fronts, and the floor. I had to remove my shoes and change my clothes. The turkey had to brine half at a time in the brine that stayed in the pan and I just flipped the bird this year. It still tasted good, despite my mess!
I hope you had a joyous (and less messy) Thanksgiving!
