Savory Turkey Brine Recipe

  • 2 quarts vegetable stock
  • 1/2 cup salt (3/4 cup Kosher or course salt)
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 1 tablespoon dried sage
  • 1 tablespoon dried thyme
  • 2 quarts cold water
In large pot combine vegetable stock, salt, sugar, and herbs over a medium heat. Simmer for about 15 minutes until the salt is completely dissolved. Remove from heat and allow to cool. Add cold water.

Place turkey in a large plastic container. (I use a turkey size oven bag doubled). Pour brine over top, cover and refrigerate.

Brine turkey for 1 hour per pound.

Thoroughly rinse all the brine from the turkey before cooking.

Otherwise there will be a salty flavor to the turkey.
