My first turkey in the bradley with some apple pie
« on: November 25, 2010, 08:38:42 PM »
Well I finally did a whole turkey in the bradley. Brined the bird for two days with kosher salt, brown sugar, Worcestershire and minced garlic. It turned out great! I can actually say it was the best turkey I have ever had  ;D




I also had to make some apple pie  ;)

Two gallons of apple cider, 7 bags of mulling spice and a bottle of everclear and a bottle of vodka. Tastes just like apple pie!!

Here's the apple pie recipe that goes great with turkey  ;) or anything else really  ;D

2 gallons of apple cider
1 cup of sugar
7 bags of mulling spice (see picture below)
750ml of everclear
750ml bottle of vodka


Heat the cider, sugar and the 7 bags of mulling spice on medium low for 45 minutes. The longer it simmers the more spice flavor you will get.. I like 45 minutes.
once the cider has cooled add the vodka and everclear. Stir well and pour into jars or back into the gallon jugs the cider came in. ENJOY!!

Looks like someone was having apple pie before turkey.  The bird looks totally delish!!  Regarding the apple pie, can you please share what the weight of the seven bags is, or the weight of an individual bag, or the the weight of the box will do?  Just trying to get an idea cause without fail the product you show will be unavailable where I live. Thanks!!

JiggerJams
You can try this one. I have been making it for almost 20 years.

Apple Pie Ala Mode

1 gallon Apple Juice
1/2 gallon Apple cider
3 cups Sugar
8 Cinnamon sticks
1 pint Everclear

Boil juice and sugar for 1/2 hour. Let cool COMPLETELY! Add Everclear and Cinnamon sticks put in fridge overnight. Bottle, serve chilled.
(Sometimes I add one Cinnamon stick to the boiling process to get more flavor)

The mulling spice bags are the size of tea bags. I should have snaped a picture of them..my oversight  :-[

The actual recipe I had for this was just as 10.5 suggested except it called for 750ml of vodka and 500ml of everclear. Since I started using the mulling spice I only use one cup of sugar and 750ml of both vodka and everclear.

Thanks for the feeback CH. Would the measurement of spice per teabag be about a tablespoon?

Maybe just a smidge less than a tablespoon. If you want the exact product I use shoot me a PM and we'll work it out. The store is open until december 20th  ;)
