Brining the Turkey


Brining is another pre-cooking treatment traditional in preparing a Thanksgiving turkey. Placing the entire bird in a salt and water solution known as brine produces a moist and well-seasoned turkey. After brining the turkey for up to 24 hours in the refrigerator, the bird can be placed in the oven. This technique often produces a moist bird that's hard to overcook.

Don't forget to hydrate! Forego sugary juices and sodas and pack a bottle of water in your child's lunch. If your child likes a little more flavor, spice it up with lemon, lime, cucumbers, or fresh fruit.
