    gingerkitten D's Note:

    This is a VERY juicy turkey! It is so delicious, but a little salty, so if you can't have, or don't like salt then I would reduce the amount of use more water. This turkey comes out VERY tender. Most turkeys that you buy at the grocery store have been "enhanced" with a sodium solution, which means it is already kind of salty. I would reduce the amount of salt to 1 cup instead of four unless you are using a turkey that has not been treated with a sodium solution.
