Fennel Spice Rub for Turkey (Michael Chiarello)

15 mins (prep 5, cooking 10)
5 ingredients
12 servings
I make this every year for our turkey! It is so potent when you've first ground it, but don't worry, since once it's cooked you're left with a wonderfully spiced turkey (but nothing unusually flavored). People will not be able to pick out the spices, but will comment how great the turkey tastes. It makes the best gravy. It is so dark and rich with a great savory taste. Second time I brined turkey and it was super moist, although the flavor was the same when it was not brined.
