  • Cheryl's Recipe Corner!
  • Apple Beer and Butter Turkey
  • Description
    • Russ and I enjoyed a turkey over last weekend that used a recipe similar to this, and we will use this recipe on Thanksgiving day as we have Friendsgiving with our friends!
  • Ingredients
    • 1/2 cup (56g) butter
    • 2/3 cup (160ml) hard apple cider or apple cider or juice (or beer of choice)
    • 1 tablespoon salt
    • 1-1/2 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
    • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
    • 2 teaspoons onion powder
    • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
    • 1 (15 pound) (6.8kg) turkey completely thawed
  • Directions
    • In a small saucepan melt butter over medium-low heat. Stir in the cider (or juice or beer), salt, Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, onion powder, garlic powder, and cayenne pepper. Bring to a boil and remove from heat. Fill a culinary injector with the hot sauce and inject the turkey in several spots. I also like to make sure some of the sauce is drizzled over the skin. It really helps to make the skin golden brown. Place turkey in a roasting pan and bake at 325 degrees F for 4 hours or until meat thermometer inserted in the breast reads 165 degrees F. Remove from oven and let rest 20-30 minutes before carving. (this step is very important or the juices will just go everywhere)
  • Cheryl's Mixed Drink Corner
  • New England Express
  • Description
    • The day is hard enough. Shaking cocktails would be suicide! Punch, however, works. In a nod to early New England Thanksgivings, I use two regional pours: rum (big in the Colonial days) and cider. Unlike most punches, this one won’t leave you under the table after two glasses.
  • Ingredients (Thyme Simple Syrup)
    • 1/3 cup sugar
    • 1/3 cup water
    • 8 sprigs thyme
  • Ingredients (Cocktail)
    • 2 cups apple cider
    • 1-1/2 cups dark rum
    • 3/4 cup fresh lime juice
    • 1 teaspoon Angostura bitters
    • Club soda
    • 8 sprigs thyme
    • 8 lime slices
  • Directions (Thyme Simple Syrup)
    • Bring sugar and 1/3 cup water to a boil in a small saucepan, stirring to dissolve sugar. Remove from heat, add thyme sprigs, and cover. Let stand 10 minutes, then strain into a small jar. Let cool. (DO AHEAD) Syrup can be made 1 month ahead. Cover and chill. ASSEMBLY: Mix thyme syrup, cider, rum, lime juice, and bitters in a pitcher. Divide among rocks glasses filled with ice; top off with club soda. Garnish with thyme sprigs and lime slices. (DO AHEAD) Thyme syrup, cider, rum, lime juice, and bitters can be mixed 4 hours ahead. Cover and chill.
