My Favorite Turkey Brine

 

My Favorite Turkey Brine -  A juicy, fantastic turkey. If you’ve never brined a turkey, you’ll just have to trust me on this.

Summary: I brine a turkey every year because it’s the right thing to do. Brining involves soaking a turkey in a very salty solution for a certain length of time, long enough for the salt to infiltrate the turkey and actually alter the molecular structure of the meat. It doesn’t turn it into a salty mess, either. It just results in a juicy, fantastic turkey. If you’ve never brined a turkey, you’ll just have to trust me on this.
