Orange, lemon, and lime zests are the shining stars of this dry brined turkey. The zests are combined with brown sugar, butter, and sage to create a sweet and savory taste contrast. Marinate your turkey for up to three days in this dry brine for a juicy and flavorful Thanksgiving meal!


Use citrus in a fall table centerpiece!

Citrus can easily light up a holiday tablescape in a beautiful fall centerpiece! Have your family gather around a layout of pinecones, cranberries, cinnamon sticks, oranges, clementines, or grapefruits. Make it your own by decorating the citrus fruits with cloves, tea lights, various colored pumpkins, or fall-themed decor!
