Wild turkey is notoriously known for being dry and somewhat tough. Our goal with this recipe was to create a simple way to introduce moisture to the wild turkey meat through the use of apple juice in a pressure cooker. The apple juice also adds a component of sweetness, while the spices supply the savory.
