    breezermom's Note:

    This is a very simple brine for turkey to insure that you have a moist turkey once you roast it. It isn't full of spices, allowing you to season your turkey with fresh herbs, etc while you roast it. I use it in combination with Turkey With Herbes De Provence and Citrus 267634. I haven't included the overnight brining time in the cook and prep time, since the turkey is just hanging out by itself in the cooler. I use a brining bag that I get at my local grocery store...basically a huge ziplock with a double zipper seal. wouldn't accept "brining bag" as an ingredient, but you have to have a food quality bag to brine in.

    1. 1
      Combine the apple juice, water, and salt in a large stock pan, Heat and stir until the salt has dissolved completely and the liquid looks clear. Add the garlic and remove from heat.
    2. 2
      Allow the brine to cool completely.
    3. 3
      Wash your turkey thoroughly, removing the neck and giblets so the brine can get to the interior of the bird. Save the neck and giblets for gravy or stock.
    4. 4
      Place some ice in the bottom of a cooler (large enough to hold your turkey. Place the turkey in your brining bag, and place upright in your cooler. Pour the brine over the turkey, and seal the bag securely, removing any excess air so the turkey is totally submerged and covered with the brine. Pour more ice in the cooler so that your turkey will stay cold overnight.
    5. 5
      When you are ready to roast your turkey, remove it from the brine, and rinse the turkey again. Pat the turkey dry, and season your turkey as you prefer.
