Hi Peeps! I have been hard at work adding content to my site. BakingNana.com (I told you I was building my own soap box) Any way, I just put up a post about turkey brine with my favorite brine recipe.

Recommend a recipe

There is a post about selecting the right bird for you and getting ready for the big day.

I took a peek BN, and I love it! I will definitely refer to your site often. You are now in my Recipe Box! Hope it's not too cramped in there. ;)

Oh, by the way - if you are on facebook my page for Baking Nana could use a few more 'likes' https://www.facebook.com/bakingnanaskitchen

Done! You have been "liked" on FB. Thank you for the offer of your help. Much appreciated.

Good to get out the word that brine and marinade are not the same thing. I think I learned the hard way a few years ago. Spongy chicken with a bizarre taste. From your blog, I'm thinking I must have used regular salt.

Hi Emeralds. I know there are people who say regular salt is OK but I just plain disagree. Brining a pre-basted bird will also turn the meat spongy and over brining a chicken can too. Chicken doesn't need nearly as long as turkey does. Thanks for stopping by the blog. I appreciate it.

You're welcome. I do have a question. I have plenty of kosher salt on hand but was wondering if sea salt would work in place of kosher. I hear it is quite a bit more expensive than kosher salt so I would not sub. Just wondering.

If I'd have done a blind test, I'm not sure I would have guessed chicken; it was more like a bad tofu dish. Do you have a way we can sign up so our names are our user names here? It'd be nice to recognize posters.

Bambam - sea salt comes in so many different 'grinds' that I would be hesitant to recommend how much sea salt. I am sure it would work well, I just don't know how to judge how much to use.

emeralds, are you referring to signing up on my site? I am in the process of adding a place where people can register and add recipes, create menus and shopping lists. For right now, I think when you comment you can select your 'name'.

Thank you Mrs. J - it is a work in progress, for sure. You don't build a 'soap box' overnight. It is a LOT of work!

And work much appreciated. I think I misunderstood what you said at the beginning. I thought there was some sort of joining to do b/4 I could comment. I posted on your Thanksgiving one, will watch to see if it appears.

Thank You Mrs. J. Emeralds - I saw, and appreciate your comment. I have to put the the little "math problem" on the comments to prove you are human - I get at least 200 'bot' comments a day with out that. Everyone's first comment goes into moderation - once approved your comments will post immediately. It is a work in progress, for sure!
