DIRECTIONS

  • Mix the salt, water and spices along with the wine in a large clean container such as a food grade five gallon bucket. Stir well until the salt dissolves. (Sterilite makes a nice five gallon can that's clear and food grade that I obtained from Big Lots for this purpose for $8 ).
  • Take your thawed turkey, clean it under running water and remove the neck and giblets for another use.
  • Add the turkey to the brine, putting it in so the breast side is down in the brine, be sure to fill all the cavities in the bird with the brine.
  • Cover and refrigerate until time to cook, then drain and cook according to your package directions.
