DIRECTIONS

  • Combine all ingredients (except olive oil and butter) in a large pot and bring to a boil.
  • Turn off heat and let the brine cool completely.
  • Place a cleaned turkey (giblets removed) breast-side down into the brine. You can brine it right in the pot if it fits, or in a brining bag.
  • Refridgerate turkey in brine for 16 - 24 hours.
  • Remove turkey from brine and rinse really well to remove excess salt from surface of the bird. (All the good brine flavor will be inside the meat).
  • Pat your turkey dry with paper towels and brush a mixture of olive oil and butter all over your bird.
  • Roast your turkey according to your directions. (I roast mine in a roasting bag.).
