Holiday Market Recipe
This week, Chef Matt McPherson from Matt’s Red Rooster Grill shares with us his amazing Three-Day Thanksgiving Turkey Brine recipe. (Thank you, Matt!)
Three-Day Turkey Brine
What You’ll Need:
1 gallon fresh apple cider
6 garlic cloves, crushed
1 sweet Vidalia onion, medium dice
1 ½ cups light brown sugar
1 ½ cups kosher salt
20 whole black pepper corns
3 bunches fresh thyme
2 juniper berries crushed
1 star anise, crushed
4 bay leaves broken
What To Do:
– Mix above ingredients together.
— Place turkey in mixture and place it in the refrigerator for 24 hours.
— Rinse lightly and air dry in the refrigerator for 24 hours. This will ensure a crisp skin.
— Combine 1/4 cup olive oil, ¼ cup melted butter with juice and zest of 2 oranges, salt and pepper, 1 bunch of fresh thyme, chopped. Mix together and rub the turkey, roast in the oven and enjoy.
Guitarist Keith Calmes will perform in our music tent from 10 a.m. to noon.
Calmes has been performing and teaching guitar for over three decades. His performance credits include a Carnegie Hall recital debut as Winner of the Artists International Competition, concerti with the Monmouth Symphony, a performance with Maestro Carlos Barbosa-Lima and many concerts and recordings with flautist Marjorie Koharski.
Although usually considered a classical guitarist, Calmes’ musical diversity can be attested to. He has studied with Jazz master Jim Hall and opened for Surf legend Dick Dale and Flamenco virtuoso Juan Serrano. A deep interest in Indian rhythms has led to serious studies and performances with percussion virtuoso Selvaganesh Vinayakram and his family band. Keith has also played in a wide variety of jazz and rock bands.
