Celebrating all the runners at the Boston Marathon today. These shoes were left by runners last year as a tribute to those injured, and are now on display in the Boston Public Library, adjacent to the marathon finish line. #bostonmarathon

How to Brine a Turkey
Getting a perfect turkey for Thanksgiving starts the day before with brining. Brining keeps the turkey moist and flavorful.
Take a large pot and fill with 10 cups of water. Add a full cup kosher salt (it has extra large granularity), a half cup of brown sugar, a few teaspoons of thyme, a teaspoon of cloves, two tablespoons of black peppercorns - not ground, a pinch of white paper, a bay leaf (or two), and I suggest 2 ounces of dark rum (the alcohol will cook off if you're opposed to the hard stuff). I suggest adding one orange peel and a few pieces of lemon peel to get the zest.
Bring the mixture to a boil, then let simmer for five minutes. Let it cool to room temperature.
Place the turkey into a cooler large enough to hold the entire turkey and be fully immersed in ice water. I add a layer of ice to the bottom of the cooler, then add the turkey, then pour the brine over the turkey. Add more ice and water, and place the top onto the cooler. If the turkey is not fully submerged place a dinner plate onto it so the turkey is weighted down.
Allow the turkey to brine overnight, or for at least 6 hours. Make sure to keep ice on the turkey if the cooler doesn't keep it from melting.
When complete, remove the turkey and cook in the oven and discard the brine. The turkey will remain moist, having absorbed the water and flavors overnight. Enjoy your turkey! #thanksgiving   #thanksgivingrecipes   #turkey
