Apple Chicken Brine

10 March 2020

I made this up to go with some apple wine a friend had given us. It was quite possibly the best chicken I have ever roasted. I love cooking the chicken in a cast iron roasting pan sitting on a bed of chopped apple, onion, and garlic. Place thawed whole chicken in chilled brine and refrigerate 18 to 24 hours. Roast chicken as usual.

Green Tomato and Bacon Soup

This is a great way to use the green tomatoes at the end of the season. Freezes really well! I recommend serving it with a nice crusty bread.
