    Battle in Seattle's Note:

    My mom uses this recipe for her catering business and always gets a lot of compliments. It makes a very moist, herby turkey. (Works great with two bone-in, skin-on turkey breasts, too).

    Directions:

    1. 1
      In a container large enough to hold the turkey and brine combine all ingredients except the water, turkey and clarified butter.
    2. 2
      In a saucepan bring water to a boil and add to container, stirring to dissolve salt and sugar. Let cool until cold.
    3. 3
      Add turkey to brine so that it is completely submerged, cover, and chill for 48 hours. (A large NEW mop-bucket or Rubbermaid container works great for this.) If turkey is not completely submerged, turn it several times during the 48 hours.
    4. 4
      Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F. Drain the turkey, pat it dry, and truss. Transfer the turkey to a roasting pan fitted with a rack.
    5. 5
      Rinse a double thickness of cheesecloth in cold water and squeeze out excess moisture. Dip in clarified butter and arrange over the turkey.
    6. 6
      Roast the turkey, basting it frequently with any remaining clarified butter and the pan juices, for 3 to 4 hours, or until a meat thermometer inserted in the thigh joint registers 150 degrees F and the juices run clear.
    7. 7
      Let rest, covered loosely with foil, for 30 minutes before carving.
