I’ve brined my turkey, should rinse it before drying with paper towels? Thanks!
Generally no, unless the recipe specifically says to do so! Which recipe are you using?
Hi, thanks. I’m following the video (a bit) by Josh at Food52, not really a recipe - more technique. I have a basting bourbon butter ready to use.
Got it—it shouldn't be necessary to rinse it, but with a wet brine it also won't hurt anything to rinse it (if you'd been drying out the skin after dry brining, better to keep it dry so it will get crispier, but it's already quite wet from the wet brine). Good luck and that bourbon butter sounds delicious!
Brining Is the process of osmosis. the salt draws the water across the membraine and the result is a more juicy bird. The saltiness is negligible.
So I don’t need to rinse it off when I remove it from the brine? Correct ?
I don’t do it
