Orange and molasses give this turkey a beautiful sheen, but their real strength is in flavoring the pan dripping's, which become the aromatic base for a wonderful gravy. Early settlers brined meats as a way of tenderizing and preserving, but today we use brining as a terrific method for ensuring tender, moist and juicy turkey. Brining isn't hard to do and the results are outstanding. Instead of stuffing the turkey, the flavorful dressing is cooked alongside.
