Brown Bag Turkey with Herb RubBy MarcoI know what you’re thinking: Cooking a turkey in a paper bag sounds crazy… I know, right?

This is super easy with almost guaranteed success every time. But, we are going to mix it up a little by adding a sweet and salty savory rub. This rub will seal the juices and flavors in and deliver a unique and delicious bird. Your guests will do back flips or just smile with delight.

It is asserted that heating food above 110ºF is believed to destroy enzymes in food that can assist in the digestion and absorption of food. Cooking is also thought to diminish the nutritional value and "life force" of food. My little sister, Jill who goes by Kin's, shared this recipe with me a while back and I made it yesterday and just pulled it out of the dehydrator this morning. These cookies were amazing and really good for you. I made a few tweaks to it but, I think it made them better. Quantities can be fudged, this is a very forgiving recipe. Make sure to buy 'raw' nuts and not roasted. If it doesn't say 'raw', it is roasted.
