How to Roast a Perfect Turkey with Fresh Cranberry Relish- Recipe by Miriam Kairey

1 Comment 26 February 2013

 

 

 My friend Miriam Kairey can not only professionally trace your family history back at least ten generations, but she can also teach us all how to roast the perfect kosher turkey for Thanksgiving. She is a gourmet cook and is author of the  cookbook Positively Passover. She makes Syrian “kaak” regularly and is committed to preserving the art of cooking  Syrian Jewish Cuisine. Although Thanksgiving turkey is not exactly a Syrian main dish, Miriam has perfected her turkey roasting technique and I asked her to share it with all of us Jewish Hostesses! Thanks Miriam!!

“Thanksgiving is a big deal in the Kairey house.  It is a great opportunity to invite family and friends who live too far to walk over on Jewish Holy Days.  On this day we set aside the rich culinary tradition of the Syrian Jews in favor of delicious dishes that are quintessentially American.  The key to capturing the essence of these flavors is to use an abundant supply of fresh herbs including parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme, just like the Simon and Garfunkel song.

There is no shortage of  Thanksgiving recipes on the web. Besides The Jewish Hostess, I also recommend Martha Stewart as a reliable source.  Just be sure to add plenty of chopped parsley and sage leaves to your stuffing, and sprinkle rosemary leaves on top of your sweet potatoes before cooking.  Reserve the stems to use when making turkey stock.

When it comes to roasting a succulent turkey, twenty years of trial and error have made me an expert.  My recipe combines the flavors of garlic and thyme, but neither overwhelm the delicious taste of the bird.  If you do not already have one, invest in a large roasting pan with cover (check out Granite Ware 18-Inch Covered Oval Roaster from Amazon.)
A foil roaster will deliver a turkey that takes longer to roast and is drier.  Make sure you have a meat thermometer (check out Taylor Elite 602 Meat Roasting Thermometer from Amazon).

Take the turkey out of the oven the minute it is cooked, otherwise the breast dries out and shreds when you try to carve it.

If you purchase a frozen turkey, put it in the fridge to defrost on Sunday or Monday, clean and season it on Wednesday,  and it will be ready to stuff and roast on Thanksgiving day.

Enjoy! Miriam.”

Roast Turkey

  • 12 to 16 lb turkey
  • 1 ½ heads garlic cloves peeled
  • 2 Tbs. Paprika
  • 1 Tbs. kosher salt
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • 3 to 4 Tbs. Oil
  • 4 Onions sliced into discs
  • 7 bay leaves
  • Large bunch fresh Thyme, leaves attached to stems
  • You will also need:
  • Roasting bag
  • Roaster with cover
  • Meat thermometer
  • Turkey baster

The day before Thanksgiving, make a paste of garlic, paprika, salt, pepper and oil in a food processor .  Rub completely over turkey inside and out.  Lift the skin on the breast and rub the paste underneath the skin directly onto the breast.  Tuck several bay leaves under skin as well.  If turkey is not completely defrosted yet don’t worry.  Put turkey in an oven bag and scatter remaining bay leaves, onion and thyme (stems included) all around the bird.  Close bag and refrigerate overnight.

Thanksgiving  day heat oven to 325.  Calculate 20 minutes per pound, and you will arrive at the approximate roasting time.  Then you can decide what time you need to put the turkey in the oven.  With turkey still in bag place stuffing inside the cavity of turkey.  Twist bag closed put in roaster and cover.  It cover does not close completely its ok, because the turkey is in a bag.

Once roasting is well under way,  I remove turkey from oven every 20 minutes or so, unwrap the bag, and baste turkey. About 1 hour from finish time I cut away the bag so the turkey can get a golden brown color.  Now you will want to start checking the temperature by inserting meat thermometer between the thigh and breast, but not touching the bone.  When temp reaches 165, remove bird from oven.  It will continue to cook even after leaving oven.  Discard Thyme.  Wait 20 minutes, carve and serve immediately.

 

Serve with fresh Cranberry Relish:

  • 12 oz fresh cranberries
  • 1 navel orange, peeled
  • 1 c. sugar
  • 2 Tbs. fresh ginger, grated.

Place all ingredients in food processor and pulse until finely chopped.  Do not puree.

Introducing- A Menu Makeover with Soy Vay Preservative Free Sauces and Marinades

Dear Hostesesses,

Let me  introduce you to  Soy Vay- a preservative free marinade that packs a lot of flavor punch while making sure your not sweating over the hot stovetop.   Why is the buzz surrounding Soy Vay growing by  leaps and bounds?

1- Every Jewish housewife loves a good story, and Soy Vay has a great one! Way back in the 80’s, a Jewish guy and a Chinese girl got together to share their love of food and cooking, and kaboom! A kosher, Asian inspired marinade was born, and became an instant success at local markets and fairs. Kudos to this entrepreneurial duo! Now, the famous kosher 5 Soy Vay marinades and sauces are showcased on supermarket shelves across the country.

2- Soy Vay is preservative free. Meaning that there are NO yucky sulfites (used to prevent browning in foods), BHA/BHT additives (preserves fats and oils), and Sodium Benzoate (prevents fermentation in fruit juices) additives included which causes some children to become more hyperactive and distractible than usual among some other not so yummy side effects. (If you really want to know more about some of the un-plus effects of preservatives click HERE.)

3-  I’ve been experimenting with the different varieties of Soy Vay for some of my Shabbat, Barbeque, and weeknight meals. My married daughters have been asking me for my new recipes, my teenage son’s friends moms have texted me for the secret ingredient in my roast, and I’ve noticed that I haven’t had have  Shabbat leftovers “LEFT OVER”  for  our last minute warmup Sunday night dinners anymore!

The 5 Soy Vay marinades are all you ever need for a stress free marinade and flavor menu-makeover. Teriyaki, Toasted Sesame, Hoisin Garlic, Wasabi Teriyaki, and Island Teriyaki will not disappoint you!
