1 whole fresh turkey or frozen turkey that has not been injected with sodium solution (I use a 20-pound turkey)
My Favorite Turkey Brine, recipe follows
2 sticks butter, softened
3 tablespoons chopped fresh rosemary
2 tablespoons julienned orange zest
2 gallons cold water
3 cups apple cider
2 cups packed brown sugar
3/4 cup kosher salt
3 tablespoons tricolor peppercorns
5 whole bay leaves
5 cloves garlic, minced
Peel of 3 large oranges, cut into large strips
4 rosemary sprigs, leaves stripped
This is enough for a 20 pound fresh turkey. You can decrease the quantity for a smaller bird.
