DIRECTIONS

  • Place the turkey in the bucket or large non-aluminum pasta pot big enough so that it can be submerged in liquid.
  • Dissolve salt and brown sugar in the chicken stock, apple juice and white wine.
  • Add the herbs and pour over the turkey.
  • Add cold water until the turkey is completely submerged under liquid.
  • If the bucket has a lid then cover it or use plastic wrap and place in the fridge for at least 24 hours prior to roasting.
  • When ready to roast, remove turkey from the brine.
  • Discard the brine- do not use it to make gravy.
  • Pat the turkey dry with paper towels.
  • Stuff the turkey if you wish.
  • Brush with oil or melted butter season with seasoning salt and roast in the usual manner.
  • Boil up the neck and make the gravy from the stock.
