“I came up with this recipe after trying several brines and taking the best from them all. Try it and taste the difference. It makes enough for a 9 to 12 pound turkey.” - by HEINZWORTH
Original recipe yields 1.25 gallons
- Line a large stockpot with a large food safe bag. Pour the water, wine, and salt into the bag; stir until the salt is completely dissolved. Squeeze the orange quarters into the liquid and then drop them into the pot. Add the rosemary and give a final stir.
- To use, carefully lower a thawed turkey into the brine and tie the bag to seal; store in refrigerator at least 5 hours before cooking.

"This was the best turkey I've ever made! It was moist for the entire week of leftovers. I did a 16 pounder and it was plenty. After taking it out of the brine, drying it and letting it come to room..." See more temp, I rubbed it with butter herb rub of sage, rosemary, thyme, and garlic. Added sald and pepper and cooked. Delicious! Thank you!"
