Don't forget fresh herbs for Thanksgiving. Now is the time to stock up on Sage, Thyme, Oregano and Parsley for all those great recipes for the big meal of the year. Stuffing and dressing just can't be the same without fresh herbs. Roasting the turkey with herbs under the skin is a wonderful way to add flavor. We always brine our turkey and include Thyme, Oregano and Sage. Our turkey is always moist when we soak it in a salt brine solution the night before Thanksgiving. Our recipe also has honey for a golden color and sweetness.
Mamaw's dressing is always cornbread dressing with fresh sage and chicken stock (with the pieces of chicken cut up into it). Tradition is the best part of this wonderful food holiday.
