Blogging Thanksgiving Part 6

Turkey is in the brine (doing the 12 hour brine, or 1/2 cup of table salt per gallon of water; Cooks Illustrated says to discard the liver in my gravy making.

Done. Discarded.

Browned giblets. Add coarse chopped onion, reduce heat, and let the onion start to give up it's liquid. Add chicken stock, parsley, and thyme. Simmer and skim.

The apartment smells of turkey, now.

Strain broth. De-fat. Chill overnight.

John need sleep.
