Anyone brined a Kosher turkey?

Thank you too! Funny, but I iused Alton Brown's recipe for the Good Eats Turkey, which contained the brine I had wanted to try. I regret now not brining,

but will definitely next year , cutting salt to 1/4 cup. However, with the addition of the aromatics, the turkey was superb, even without the brine!

Anyone brined a Kosher turkey?

Thanks much for your reply, and the funny part is my sister in law is here now from NYC...she is part owner of Abigail Kirsch catering, and I thought your response was referring to her company. I excitedly told her
but she said you were referring to a different Abigail's....and that it is a Kosher caterer,. She is good friends with the Chef Jeffrey Nathan, and will tell him of your post. Oh well,...with all the negative feedback, opted to forgo the brining this year. Will definitely brine my Kosher turkey next year, if not before :). Happy Thanksgiving to all!!

Anyone brined a Kosher turkey?

I am dying to brine my turkey this year- rave reviews on a recipe I want to try. However, I use Kosher turkeys every year, and know they do not "need" to be brined...anyone ever brined a Kosher turkey? I realize I will have to cut the salt down considerably. Wondering if it's worth the effort.

Georgian Chicken in Pomegranate and Tamarind Sauce Anybody??

ok, so I made this for dinner last night, and it was good, however don't think I'll make it again. Sauteed onions first (per your suggestion), then garlic, followed by spices. Only used 1 diluted T. Tamarind paste (plenty) for 7 large chicken breasts. We all enjoyed it, but boy I'm still tasting those onions.

Wow, am so sorry to hear this-what a shame, and on a holiday yet. Sounds like you did a super job remedying the situation. Am just about to start chicken for tomorrow night's dinner. Will let you know how it goes. I have to make the recipe after going to four stores for tamarind paste!

Made pomegranate molasses now what do I do with it?

Lebanese-style moussaka (vegetarian) is delish with pomegranate molasses. Kudos to you for making it.

After posting this, I found an archived review of this recipe on Chowhound. User said it was fantastic and tasted better if cooked on low heat for addl. hour. I know, I saw that "20 pieces" and was going to adjust using Kosher bone-in breasts which are quite large. Good luck and let me know how yours turns out :) Also, there's a pic on-line...I can send you the link.
