A Zander Team Recipe Share

Thanksgiving will be here before you know it!  So we thought it would be fun to share a favorite recipe with you!

Corey Zander is the head cook in the Zander household.  Corey's parents both immigrated to America from Germany in the 1950's and he gained his love of cooking from his mother.  Every year Corey volunteers to cook the turkey for his family and he experiments with different combinations.  He's tried smoking, frying, baking and brinning the turkey.  Last year the Zander family gathered for an early Thanksgiving dinner and Corey's brined turkey was 'perfection'.  

Below you will find his recipe.  If you decide to try this recipe out this year, please let us know how it turned out by posting on our Facebook business page!  We would love to hear from you!

2 cups apple Apple Juice
¾ Cups butter

boil, and cook for 5 minutes. Add ice to cool completely.
Place uncooked turkey in large pot or brining bag.  Pour solution with turkey and refrigerate for 20-24 hours. If you do not have room in your fridge, you can cover with ice and place a cooler or other protected area. 
When ready to roast turkey, remove turkey from brine. Submerge turkey in a pot or
sink of fresh, cold water. Allow to sit in clean water for 15 minutes to remove excess

Discard brine. Remove turkey from clean water, rinse, pat dry, and cook according to your
normal roasting method.
