Not liking the looks of the skin on my turkey breast, I removed it, then brined the turkey. Worried that it would dry out in the oven without the skin to protect it, I decided to use my slow cooker to cook it. I totally winged it so measurements are approximate, but I was so pleased with the ease of preparation and the results yielded that I had to post this. It makes the richest broth from the carrot, celery and onion that makes the tastiest gravy, and I am a huge gravy fan! And with the skin removed there was no need to skim fat from it. The carrots were delicious to eat too! I'm not sure if the brine was necessary, but I wanted a way to preserve it until I could cook it the next day, and it definitely helped to keep it moist and tasty. It wasn't salty, but I may brine skin-on next time and then remove it to see if there is a difference. I hope you enjoy it!
