How to Brine a Turkey

Brining isn’t a topic that gets brought up most of the year. I rarely get texts or messages from friends and family members wondering how to brine a pork loin or a whole chicken. But, as Thanksgiving draws nearer, the inquiries start flying, and they all have one ask: How do I ensure I have a flavorful seasoned turkey that doesn’t turn out dry and boring this year? Brine it.

What Is Brining?

Brining can be done with any cut of meat, but it’s especially important with lean cuts like poultry. In short, brining uses salt to add flavor, tenderize and infuse meat with extra moisture. It can be done by submerging a cut of meat into a saltwater solution (a wet brine) or by sprinkling salt directly onto the meat (a dry brine). The salt denatures the meat’s proteins, causing the muscle fibers to unravel and swell. That allows

The 7 Best Popcorn Makers for Theater-Level Popcorn at Home

If there’s one snack that will never go out of style, it’s popcorn. Equally appetizing for children and adults alike, popcorn is a go-to for movie nights, game nights, and general snacking in between meals.

Whether you prefer the classic combination of butter and salt or like to experiment with sweet concoctions, all bowls of popcorn need a fresh base of kernels to start with.

5 Super-Safe Growth Stocks Ripe for the Picking

With Mr. Market moving up, down and sideways over the last few days, there’s a growing feeling of uncertainty about investing in stocks. Things look even more uncertain when you consider that the elections are right around the corner. And the elections have always added to the uncertainty.

News has also started trickling in about retail sales that won’t track historical patterns. Black Friday won’t see the long lines we’re used to. There could still be the deals and promotions online, but without the throngs of people in the holiday spirit, filling the shops, restaurants and bars, it just won’t be the same thing.

The holiday season usually goes to retailers, but there are, understandably, many unknowns this year. So whatever you do right now, it’s best to tread with caution.

With that in mind, I’ve made safety the main criterion to pick a few stocks.
