Brining A Turkey

   Turkey is a mild-flavored meat that easily dries out during cooking. Brining a turkey – basically, bathing in salt water, sugar and seasoning – keeps it moist during cooking. Kosher turkeys have always been processed with salt. Whatever the brining method, wash off the brine well before cooking.

 

Ingredients:

1 14-16 pound turkey

1 cup kosher salt

1 cup packed brown sugar

1 tablespoon black peppercorns
