How to Brine a Turkey
Elevate your fresh, local bird to a whole new level with Lepp’s Turkey Brine Spice Blend. As turkey is naturally lean, it can become dry and tough if overcooked – this salty brine helps to break down some of the turkey’s muscle proteins aiding in overall moisture absorption.
We’ve stocked up on jars of our brine spices for the occasion! Available here at the market.

I’m a curious researcher, always wanting to know the origin of something, or why it works. So I love Alton Brown’s unique explanations for his recipes. While any brownie recipe would work to top with halva, I was intrigued with his two-bake method and loved the results! The result is a deliciously fudgy, gooey-in-the-middle and not overly sweet brownie. The halva adds a subtle layer of flavour to these rich chocolatey squares.
