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.

When a whole turkey is too much, try this Boneless Turkey Roast. A turkey thigh wrapped up in a turkey breast will please all turkey lovers and wrapping it with Lepp’s special double-smoked bacon not only gives it great flavour, but also helps to protect it from drying out.
