Cider-Braised Roasted Turkey Print 7 LikeDislike By Lillian Zhao This turkey is made with a lot of delicious herbs and spices, including Superfood Turmeric. But it also has a secret ingredient: cider! This came about in a moment of panic, with a rapidly browning turkey in the oven, and friends coming to celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday in mere hours, I realized that I had forgotten to pick up a turkey baster. A cursory glance in the fridge led me to six-pack of hard cider that had gone untouched at a previous get-together. Instead of laboriously scooping drippings from the turkey, letting all the heat out of the oven, I poured cider over the bird. I was pleasantly surprised by the moist, flavorful result!
