Here is last years Thanksgiving. I tried to find a picture of my turkey but couldn't find one :(
If you haven't brined a turkey you should try it this year. IT really does make a difference. This will be my 3rd year to do it. The bird turns out juicy and delish! Who wants a dry turkey???
1 cup of kosher salt
1/2 cup brown sugar or molasses (maple syrup works)
1 tlb black peppercorns
herbs (whatever you want to use)
1 gallon of water, or enough to cover your turkey
Heat everything so it dissolves and the flavors relax and after your water is cooled submerge your turkey and soak it for 2 to 3 days.
Make sure you rinse your turkey after you take it out of it's brine bath.
