Directions

  1. In a large stock pot over medium heat, pour in the vegetable broth, apple cider, apple juice, and water; stir in kosher salt, poultry seasoning, onion powder, black pepper, rosemary, sage, and thyme. Bring the mixture to a boil, stirring until all salt has dissolved, and boil for 30 minutes to extract flavors from herbs. Remove from heat, and allow to cool to room temperature before using as a turkey brine; allow brined turkey to marinate overnight.

This is very similar to an excellent brine I made last year, and will make again in a couple days, Joe. I also use fresh garlic and sustitute ice for the water so it can sit on a cool porch. (Hard to fit a five gallon bucket in the fridge!) I also suggest fresh herbs and spices. Try it! Your friends and family will NOT be disappointed!!

I just wanted to comment on tda95337's note. Don't use a garbage bag. There are chemicals in those bags that are toxic. I brined a bird in a turkey bag one year, and later found out that garbage bags are harmful. Use an oversized turkey roasting bag or wash out a cooler instead.

I used this exact Brine recipe for baking the Turkey yesterday for Thanksgiving. We purchased an 11 pound turkey the 21st. I put the Brine recipe together as directed. I put the Turkey with the Brine in a food grade bucket overnight for 14hrs. Removed it from the solution on Thanksgiving day & placed it in a huge colander & rinsed the access brine from the turkey. Pat dried it & stuffed it with apples & coated the skin with unsalted butter & sprinked some pepper & seasoning salt on the outside. Placed it in the roaster & added about 2 cups of chicken stock to the bottom of the roaster. The turkey cooked surprisingly in 2hrs. It was perfect & the family just loved it :)
