Dr. A's Turkey Brine

Ingredients: 1 (14-16 lb.) frozen turkey

Brine: 1 cup kosher salt, 1/2 cup light brown sugar, 1-gallon vegetable stock, 1 tablespoon black peppercorns, 1 ½ tsp allspice berries, 1 ½ tsp chopped candied ginger, 1 gallon heavily iced water

Aromatics: 1 red apple (Sliced), 1/2 onion (sliced), 1 cinnamon stick, 1 cup water, 4 sprigs rosemary, 6 eaves sage, canola oil

Instructions:

  1. Two to three days before roasting, begin thawing the turkey in the refrigerator in a cooler kept at 38 degrees.
  2. Combine the vegetable stock, salt, brown sugar, peppercorns, allspice berries, and candied ginger in a large stockpot over medium-high heat. Stir occasionally to dissolve solids and bring to a boil. Then remove the brine from the heat, cool to room temperature, and refrigerate.
  3. The night before or early on the day you are eating, combine the brine, water, and ice in the 5-gallon bucket. Place the thawed turkey (with innards removed) breast side down in brine. If necessary, weigh down the bird to ensure it is fully immersed, cover and refrigerate or set in cool area for 8-16 hours, turning the bird once half way through brining.
  4. Preheat the oven to 500 degrees F. Remove the bird from brine and rinse inside and out with cold water. Discard the brine.
  5. Place the bird on roasting rack inside a half sheet pan and pat dry with paper towels.
  6. Combine the apple, onion, cinnamon stick, and 1 cup of water in a microwave safe dish and microwave on high for 5 minutes. Add steeped aromatics to the turkey's cavity along with the rosemary and sage. Tuck the wings underneath the bird and coat the skin liberally with canola oil.
  7. Roast the turkey on lowest level of the oven at 500 degrees F for 30 minutes. Insert a probe thermometer into thickest part of the breast and reduce the oven temperature to 350 degrees. Set the thermometer alarm (if available) to 161 degrees F. A 14-16-pound turkey should require a total of 2-2.5 hours of roasting. Let the turkey rest, loosely cover with foil or a large mixing bowl for 15 minutes before carving.

Gluten Free Dutch Apple Pie

Submitted by Dr. Kandyce

Ingredients: 1 Cup all purpose gluten free flour, ½ tsp xanthan gum (Omit if your blend already contains it), 1/3 cup packed light brown sugar, ¼ cut granulated sugar, 2 tsp ground cinnamon, ½ tsp freshly grated nutmeg, ¼ tsp kosher salt, 8 tbsp unsalted butter, melted and cooled

Crust: Gluten Free Pie Crust (chilled), Egg white (For brushing)

Filling: 2 ½ pounds (about 5 large apples) Granny smith (Or other tart and firm apples), Peeled, Cored and sliced thin, ½ cup granulated sugar, 2 tsp. ground cinnamon, ¼ tsp kosher salt

Instructions:

  1. Grease lightly a 9-inch-deep dish pie plate and set it aside.
  2. Make the crumble topping: In a medium sized bow, place the flour, xanthan gum, brown sugar, granulated sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt, and whisk to combine, working out any lumps in the brown sugar. Add the butter, and mix to combine well. Place the bowl in the refrigerator to chill for about 10 minutes or until firm (or the freezer for about 5 minutes)
  3. Shape the Crust: Preheat your oven to 375F. Remove the pie dough from the refrigerator. Place it on a lightly floured piece of unbleached parchment paper, dust lightly with flour, and roll into a 12-inch round, about 3/8 inch thick. Roll the pie crust loosely on the rolling pin and then unroll it over the prepared pie plate. Press the pie crust gently into the bottom and up the sides of the pie plate and, with kitchen shears, trim the crust so that only ¼ inch of excess is overhanging the plate. Tuck the ¼ inch of excess under itself, and crimp the edge gently all the way around the crust. Pierce the bottom of the pie crust with tines of a fork and place the pie plate in the freezer to chill for 10 minutes.
  4. Par-bake the pie shell: Remove the pie plate from the freezer and place a large piece of unbleached parchment paper in the center of the crust. Place pie weights or dried beans in a single layer in the center of the pie crust, on top of the paper. Place in the center of the preheated oven and bake for 10 minutes. Remove from the oven, and remove the paper and pie weights, brush the bottom sides of the crust with the egg white and return to the oven. Bake for another 3 minutes, and remove from the oven. Reduce the oven temperature to 350 F.
  5. Make the Filling: In a large bowl, place the prepared apple slices and toss with the sugar, cinnamon and salt. Allow to sit while the pie crust is par-baking. When the pie crust has finished baking, transfer the sliced apple filling to the pie crust, leaving behind any rendered liquid from the apples. Remove the crumble topping from the refrigerator and break up into large chunks with a fork. Scatter the topping all over the top of the pie in an even layer. Press gently on the crumble topping to ensure that it adheres to the filling.
  6. Bake: Place the pie in the center of the preheated oven and bake for 45 minutes, or until the crumble topping is evenly golden brown and the apple filling is bubbling around the edges. If necessary to prevent the edges from burning, cover the crust with foil during the final 15 minutes of baking. Remove the pie from the oven and allow to cool completely before slicing and serving.

Apple Crisp with Honey

Submitted by Nayma

Ingredients: 4 /5 Honey Crisp or Fuji Apples, Granola or Oat cereal, Honey, Ground Cinnamon, Plain Yogurt, Sweetened Condensed Milk.

Instructions:

  • Do not peel the apples, cut them into wedges, then mix them with ground cinnamon with a little bit of olive oil.
  • Spread evenly on a tray and bake for around 30 mins at 375 degrees F so the apples are soft but neither dried nor mushy. It gets faster if you have an air fryer at home. In the air fryer you won't have to spread them out, rather put them all together and flip them over from time to time having the bottom apple wedges come to top and thus all wedges are equally softened. In the air fryer, do this process for only 20 mins unless they will get mushy. Instead of poaching the apples in water, this process actually preserves the apple juice and in the final bake the juice mixes with honey and makes a wonderful natural syrup. So added sugar is needed.
  • Then on an oven proof dish, lay granola or oat cereal in a layer, drizzle honey on it so that it covers the oats (but not too much). Then lay a layer of apple wedges and drizzle honey on them making sure every wedge gets honey, then put another layer of apple wedges and repeat the same process.
  • Bake it in the oven for 30 mins at 375 degrees F. Then put the final layer of oats or granola cereal and drizzle honey and bake for hardly 4 /5 mins until granola is crisp.
  • You can have this with vanilla ice cream but then you cannot eat it warm, the ice cream may melt. So take 2 cups of plain yogurt and half a cup of sweetened condensed milk. Mix it well. Take a good dollop of the hot apple crisp on your bowl and enjoy.

Tiramisu with coffee

Submitted by Nayma

Ingredients: Once box of Ritz salted crackers, Plain whole milk yogurt, nonfat whipped cream, sweetened condensed milk, coffee, plain chocolate bars or sweetened cooking chocolate.

Instructions:

  1. In a savory dish if a spoonful of sugar is added the flavors come out so good, the same way in a sweet dish, adding a little bit of salt opens up a new range of flavors. That is why I used Ritz salted crackers instead of ladyfinger cookies.
  2. On a separate big bowl, add 2/3rd container whipped cream, two cups of plain yogurt and half can (small can) sweetened condensed milk and mix very well until smooth and runny.
  3. Make coffee not too strong and very watery.
  4. Now in a dish where you want this Tiramisu to set, soak the Ritz salted cookies in the coffee such that they are not softened and broken but soaked all the way through and lay them in the dish. put 2 such layers of cookies.
  5. Now melt chocolate and drizzle a layer of chocolate on the cookies.
  6. Then cover that entire layer with the yogurt/whipped cream mix. repeat the same for another 2 layers of cookies. one layer chocolate, one layer yogurt whipped mix.
  7. On top do the decoration you please with melted chocolate, I liked to add some chopped almonds sometimes.
  8. Then you must fridge it for at least 8 hours for all the ingredients to get soaked well.
  9. After 8 hours in the fridge, enjoy a new taste of tiramisu.
