How to Make Turkey Marinade

Step-by-Step

  1. Peel garlic and chop with food processor and add all the other ingredients. Blend well. It should be a thick , spreadable paste.
  2. Take your turkey and separate the skin with your hands, from the meat. Take a large handful of marinade and cover , very thoroughly, all areas of meat. Make sure to poke into wings, legs all hard to reach areas are very important to cover.
  3. If you have any marinade left over, spread on top of turkey before start baking. I like to marinade the night before and leave in frig wrapped up.

    Bake as usual but be prepared for a delicious, moist turkey! Enjoy!
