Apple Brine for Turkey
610 mins (prep 10, cooking 600)
6 ingredients
10-12 servings
This is a very simple brine for turkey to insure that you have a moist turkey once you roast it. It isn't full of spices, allowing you to season your turkey with fresh herbs, etc while you roast it. I use it in combination with Turkey With Herbes De Provence and Citrus 267634. I haven't included the overnight brining time in the cook and prep time, since the turkey is just hanging out by itself in the cooler. I use a brining bag that I get at my local grocery store...basically a huge ziplock with a double zipper seal. wouldn't accept "brining bag" as an ingredient, but you have to have a food quality bag to brine in.
