THE LEADING LADY

There are SO many ways to roast this iconic bird and endless discussions on what methods work best. This NYT article is very good example of the ongoing “battle of the brines”.  Personally, I like Dry-Brining (which takes 4 days but I think worth it) though many of my friends swear by Wet Brining.  You might want to hop on over to this Food52 article where they discuss (and share) all kinds of Turkey Roasting methods with recipes.  CLICK HERE to see more Thanksgiving recipes from our archives.

 


 

Here are some tips Ina Garten shared with Bon Appétit on how to host a stress-free Thanksgiving Dinner

• PLAN AHEAD  • TACKLE YOUR SHOPPING IN STAGES • NO CARVING FOR A CROWD (do it in the kitchen!) • DON’T FUSS WITH ELABORATE APPETIZERS • INTRODUCE SOME INNOVATION TO THE TABLE (try a new side recipe) • DON’T EXPECT ANY HELP • MABYE JUST MAKE THANKSGIVING LEFTOVER SANDWICHS…FOR THANKSGIVING (read more here)

Speaking of new sides dishes, here’s a great recipe I’m going to try from Ina’s new book “Cook Like a Pro” which we have for sale at Hammertown!

SPEAKING OF STRESS RELIEF…
NEW from The Hudson Standard

Watermelon Chill Shrub with CBD
Hudson Standard has combined ripe local watermelon with mint, rose, and CBD from a local farm, Hudson Hemp. This is a very refreshing shrub with a light hemp flavor that lingers on the palate. A delicious way to get the multiple benefits of CBD either as a thirst quenching soda or as an exotic ingredient in a cocktail. Think tequila, mezcal, vodka and prosecco. Each 8 oz. bottle has 120 mg of CBD, or 15 mg per ounce
