This podcast has a short bonus interview at the end with Erica, the owner of MomPrepares. She shares memories of Thanksgivings growing up on a homestead where they raised, butchered, and plucked their own turkeys; and where what they grew in the garden was a main consideration of what was on their Thanksgiving table.
Heather and Erica both recommend this Turkey brine recipe from ASouthernFairyTale.com for Poblano and Cilantro Roasted Turkey.
