Traditional Brine for 12-15 lb bird
We've all had a dry turkey and it's a sad thing. Our brine will prevent that tragic event from occurring again. The brine draws moisture and the flavor of the spices and herbs into the turkey. Take one bag of our brine for a smaller turkey and two for a large one.
This brine contains salt, sugar, black pepper, coriander, fennel, thyme, red pepper, star anise, and bay leaf. All ingredients are organic.
Add the brine and spices to a half gallon of warm water and stir til the salt and sugar dissolve. Then find a large container, place the turkey and brine in a waterproof bag, and place the bag in a cooler, surrounded by ice.
Brine the turkey 12-24 hours before cooking.
