Out Of This World Turkey Brine

By: Amber Bartolet, Social Media Marketing Manager Like many others, Thanksgiving last year looked a little different. Instead of travelling to Indianapolis to spend some time with our extended family, we had a small, intimate Thanksgiving at home with my parents and siblings. This was the perfect opportunity for us to try out this “Out of This World Turkey Brine” recipe we stumbled across, and let me tell you, it did not disappoint!
