“Who wouldn’t want a great schnitty! The bone-in, Flintstone-like cut is cooked in ghee,” claims the fish butcher Josh Niland. “The flavor and stability of temperature that ghee provides is unrivalled by other cooking fats.”

If you feel that the it’s dry turkey, then you’ve not yet tried the crown. The secret ingredient is brine, which is which is a solution of salt and water that soaks the turkey prior to cooking. Brines soften meats and also make them taste succulent and deliciously seasoned. It’s important to be organized and prepare the brine at least 24 hours prior to the time of cooking. In contrast to making your own brine from scratch – which it is possible to do this – it could be easier. Make the brine that has been infused with sage rosemary, thyme and thyme as well as Black peppercorn, Juniper, and bay, into the brining bag. Then, add your turkey and place the whole thing in the refrigerator. That’s it.
