Thanksgiving Cooking Essentials
Thanksgiving is the time of year to reflect, practice gratitude, and revel in the company of friends and family–but let’s be honest, it just wouldn’t be the same without gathering around a delicious spread with all of the fixings. We’ve put together a list of the Thanksgiving essentials you need for the Perfect Holiday Feast.
Turkey Brining Kit
What’s the secret to moist and succulent turkey every time? SALT. Brining your bird introduces flavor-enhancing salt and much-needed moisture into the meat. This kit includes an easy-to-use Brining Mix with just the right amount of salt, sugar, and seasoning to brine a 12-15 lb. turkey, plus a Brining or Roasting Bag. The bag help the turkey retain moisture while roasting, speed up the cooking process by trapping steam, and ensure easy cleanup. Detailed instructions are included with the kit and are available online.
Holiday Roast Turkey
Only available during the holiday season, this Holiday Roast Turkey rub combines classic savory flavors: sage, rosemary, onion and garlic, and thyme on a bittersweet paprika base. Using this seasoning is simple, just rub on the outside and inside the cavity of your bird. (Don't worry, the package comes with more detailed directions!) We recommend pairing it with our Turkey Brining Kit for the most succulent roast turkey.
Tip: If you don’t have a roasting rack, place veggies such as quartered onions and carrots beneath turkey.
Capture the flavor of the classic stuffing (or dressing) you grew up eating every Thanksgiving with this traditional blend of sage, onion, garlic, and rosemary. We won’t stop you if you want to add it to your mashed potatoes as well. Or the green bean casserole. Or the turkey.
Thanksgiving and pumpkin pie go together like... well, you get the idea. It’s a thing. Savory Spice Co-Founder Janet Johnston shared the recipe and story behind her grandmother’s famous Pumpkin Chiffon Pie and we'll be coming back for seconds. The light, fluffy, melt-in-your-mouth mousse filling is built on the warm flavors of Pumpkin Pie Spice and the buttery graham cracker crust is lightly spiced with Ground Ginger.

Other Holiday Flavors You Might Enjoy...
Golden Maple Dry Glaze
This seasonal seasoning (only available through the holidays!) combines everyone’s favorite holiday flavors: maple, cinnamon, nutmeg, orange, rosemary, and more. How do you use a dry glaze? It’s really simple–just coat your turkey with oil and liberally apply the Golden Maple Dry Glaze all over. Baste once an hour until done and you will have a perfect, deliciously glazed golden bird. Let’s get it straight though, this blend shines on more than just turkey. Try it on ham, salmon, brussels sprouts or roasted veggies.
Spice ‘n Easy Sides
Spice ‘n Easy mixes were created to make homemade meals quicker and easier without sacrificing quality and flavor. Each packet contains a recipe, a small shopping list, and the spice blend you need to make that recipe. It’s that simple! Cut down on kitchen chaos by picking up these for an appetizer, a side, and a dessert.
- Red Bell Ranch: Get the party started with tangy, flavorful buttermilk ranch dressing. This crowd-pleasing dip will ensure your family eats more than 10 black olives (stuck onto their fingertips, of course) from the vegetable platter this year.
- Saffron & Chanterelle Risotto: This floral, earthy risotto is elegant enough for a special occasion and easy enough for everyday dinner. Just add water and butter for an unforgettable side dish that serves up to 8.
- Spiced Apple Bake: Use your favorite variety of apples to make this warm-spiced side that can double as dessert. Pair with vanilla ice cream (if you’re into that sort of thing).
Whatever your holiday traditions are, Savory Spice is here to help you live life full. From baking spices to classic herbs, let’s make sure you’re fully stocked for the season to come.
