Recipes from the DM Winter Market

It was so great seeing old friends and meeting new folks at the DM Winter Market. I promised I'd post the oyster cracker recipe and the Herky Perky turkey recipe, so here ya go! 

1 8 oz bag oyster crackers
1/4 c oil
1 TBSP Saltlickers spice (good ones to try: Whassamatterhorn, Cy Salt, Herky Perky, Roxy, etc.)

Preheat the oven to 300. Mix oil and spice till spice is dissolved. Toss in oyster crackers and mix well. Spread on a cookie sheet and dry in the oven for about 5 minutes.

1. Make a "mud" of 6 tbsp Herky Perky and 8 tbsp olive oil for a 12 lbs turkey. Double it for a bigger bird.
2. Smear the bird inside and out with the mud.
3. Wrap the bird in plastic wrap and keep it in the fridge for 6 hours to overnight.
4. Don't rinse. Roast, smoke, or grill as you normally would. Shove some lemons, onions and herbs inside there if you want to get fancy.
