    Make this brine for turkey or any poultry you enjoy! Do take into consideration the nutritional facts will not be right. As for most of the brine does get washed away and discarded. Serving size depends on the size of poultry you brine.

      Made for Thanksgiving, rave reviews all around. Very easy to put together, I brined my 18lb turkey in a Ziploc big bag(xl) worked perfectly, then stored in a ice chest fill with ice. Ready to go the next day. Very moist with a delicate flavor. Will be making again. Thank you Rita
