Nothing says comfort food quite like a hearty Irish stew. It’s also an excellent vehicle for our Winter Stewing Blend, which gives this stew a nice, deep base flavour of herbs, garlic and pepper. To go with it, Cheddar Nigella Beer Bread takes advantage of the perfect pairing for nigella seeds: cheddar cheese.
Why Brine? Turkey can become dry as it is cooked, and the brining solution causes a change in the turkey's protein structure that allows it to better hold onto its moisture. The flavours from the spices are absorbed and help to boost the flavour. It really is worth the little bit of extra effort.
