This is a most excellent recipe. I make 6 batches a couple of months ahead; freeze it, then use it when I make our turkeys for our annual Community Thanksgiving Dinner at church. Making it ahead makes cooking day a breeze. The resulting meat is tender and delicious and the broth for service is delicately flavored. Amazing!
It is an excellent butter, I prepared my turkey in Christmas,It was very, very good.
