Gourmet Brine Turkey

It’s easy to brine a turkey. All you need is vegetable broth, herbs, and a big food-safe bucket. Serves 15.

1 gal vegetable broth
1 cup Traditional White Coral Sea Salt
1 tbsp crushed dried rosemary
1 tbsp dried sage
1 tbsp dried thyme
1 tbsp dried savory
1 gal ice water

1. In a large stock pot, combine the vegetable broth, Traditional White Coral Sea Salt, rosemary, sage, thyme, and savory. Bring to a boil, stirring to dissolve salt. Remove from heat, and let cool to room temperature.

2. When cool, pour it into a clean 5 gallon bucket. Stir in the ice water.

3. Remove innards, wash and dry turkey. Place it, breast down, into the brine. Make sure the cavity gets filled. Place bucket in the refrigerator overnight.

4. Remove the turkey carefully draining off the excess brine and pat dry. Discard the excess brine.

5. Cook the turkey as desired reserving the drippings for gravy. Brined turkeys cook 20 to 30 minutes faster so watch the temperature gauge.
