  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Combine chicken broth and apple juice in a food-safe container large enough to hold your turkey and the brine ingredients. Squeeze juice from orange halves and drop spent orange halves into the broth mixture; add celery, onion, rosemary, thyme, bay leaves, and sage leaves to the mixture. Stir salt, poultry seasoning, and black pepper into the liquid to dissolve.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Notes:
  • Add your thawed turkey to the brine; pack ice around the turkey and pour enough water into the container so the turkey is completely submerged. Brine overnight to 12 hours.
  • Roast turkey in a roasting bag.
  • Stuff turkey with celery, onions, and herbs from the brine and 1 cup butter before roasting.
  • Keep in mind a brined turkey cooks faster than one that has not been brined.
