I have seen a lot of Thanksgiving specials on FN this weekend. I noticed most off them didnt rinse of the brines. I cannot imagine not rinsing the salt off my turkey after it has been brined. So many of them use enormous amounts of salt anyway. On their special tonight they used a brine with a pound of kosher salt in it.
My family grew up eating way to much salt. Mom was very heavy with the salt use. I season our food well but nothing like what Mom used to. My brother's food looks like it is covered with snow he salts so heavily. When I married Jon I was as bad as my brother when it came to salting my food until I got an ulcer. I couldnt eat it for a year and a half. When I was able to season my food again I did it sensibly. My sister and her husband dont even eat salt. She still has problems with her blood pressure. My father in law and brother in law dont eat hardly any salt at all. I have to be careful when seasoning the holiday meals for my inlaws and husband I do it with a light hand. Where they do not eat much of it they can really taste it in their food.
