I'm truly not sure how to rate this recipe. I'll start by saying that the turkey tasted great but I didn't really taste the flavors from the brine and the ingredients are too expensive to waste on something I'm not tasting. I've used other brines before and I don't feel the other ingredients added anything special. The cranberry juice dyed the bird an unappetizing pink and it browned way too quickly. I covered with foil but the skin was almost black by the time it was done. So in the future I think I'll pass on the frozen juices but use other features from this recipe.
This was my first try at brining a turkey and I researched it for hours! This brine was something a little different and it turned out great. We have a new tradition for turkey!
I've never had my turkey get stained...Only thing I have ever had was praise for how good, tasty, and moist it is.
