brining turkey for Thanksgiving

Postby CaptJack » Wed Nov 19, 2014 3:16 pm

here's a 7# bone-on turkey breast i'm brining.
i'm using one of the Reynolds Oven Bags (to-24#) to brine in.
the brine is 2/3cup salt, 1/3cup sugar, some ground spices, to 1quart water, boiled, cooled, 1quart orange juice.
a little water to bring it up to about 2.1/2qts total liquid.


here's a 12# turkey i brined, breast side down in the bag
a couple of weeks ago

Looks like a nice simple brine, I'm sure someone will get good use out of it next week!
