How To Brine A TurkeyFrom kdbradley 9 years ago
- For brining a turkey 15 to 20 Pounds shopping list
- 2 Gallons Cold water shopping list
- 1 1/2 cups of kosher salt shopping list
- 1 Tablespoons of dried rosemary shopping list
- 1 Tablespoons dried thyme shopping list
- 1/2 tablespoon celery seed shopping list
- 1 Tablespoon black peppercorns shopping list
- 1/4 cup Light-brown sugar shopping list
How to make it
- Special equipment: Large Stock pot or other receptacle (5 Gallon plastic bucket with lid works great)
- The night before roasting, rinse the turkey inside and out with cold water. (Reserve the Turkey neck and giblets for stock and gravy; keep refrigerated).
- In a large stock pot or 5 gallon bucket, mix 2 Gallons cold water with the salt, rosemary, thyme, celery seed, peppercorns and sugar.
- Stir well until all the salt is dissolved. Put the turkey in the pot. Cover and place in a cold spot (lower than 40°) or refrigerate and let stand over night or 6 to 8 hours.
- Remove the Turkey from the brine, rinse well and follow your cooking instructions as normal.
