Divine Turkey Brine :)

As we're sure many of you are aware, brining turkies is a great way to add flavor and succulence to your holiday turkey.

Just thought we'd pop in and share our favorite brine recipe with you:

Determine the number of gallons of water you will need to completely cover your turkey. For each gallon of cold water, use 1 cup Kosher salt, 1/2 cup sugar and one packet of Garli Goop (or 2 Tbsp Garli Garni). Add some lemons or oranges (squeeze juice into brine) and throw in the citrus. Submerge turkey in brine to cover in a clean pot, brining bag or pot and keep in a cold place overnight. Rinse turkey, discard brine and cook as you normally would.

Happy Thanksgiving!!

"I got my order on Saturday!  Wow talk about FAST!  I made a roast and some pan potatoes that day and of course they were YUMMY.  My son came home from work and saw the Garlic Garni on the counter and was so excited as we all use it in everything (I believe he made some Mac and Cheese after I went to bed.  Thanks for such wonderful products =)  We're a Garlic Garni Family"- Linda in UT

Zesty Ballpark Garli Glaze Hot Wings

We just ran our SF Giants World Champs promo.. ( are you on our mailing list??) and this is one of the recipe on the special "Ball Park Favorites" recipe cards we are including in orders the next couple of weeks.

Zesty Ball Park Hot Wings with Garli Glaze
This is a winner!

Pat dry  & toss the desired number of wings with any hot sauce (such as Tobasco) and bake at 350 degrees on an oiled cookie sheet or parchment paper until nearly done. Remove  & cool slightly. Toss with Garli Glaze to coat evenly & return to the oven & finish cooking until tender & slightly caramelized. Delicious!!

Health advice takes a pinch of SALT

Health fads come and go but one constant seems to remain in the question of how much salt is actually good for us. Most folks question whether salt is good for them when they may have heart, blood pressure or hypertension issues.The answer to this question might surprise you.
We are constantly asked how much salt is in our products and various other questions. We do provide health panels on our website to answer the questions about how much is in OUR products. And for those other questions, we were happy to discover this article in our Costco Connection newsletter. We think you will find it interesting too:
