Grandma's Farmhouse Turkey Brine
November 26, 2010

Love this recipe. I have used it for several years now. My family insists that I used this brine when cooking Thanksgiving and Christmas turkeys. It is easy, inexpensive and definitely makes the turkey more moist, flavorful and delicious. I especially love the gravy that it makes...sorta salty, but I love salty things. I follow the recipe exactly, but sometimes I use chicken stock/broth instead of vegetable if it is what I have on-hand or is less expensive. Also, I always double the recipe to ensure that there is enough to cover the turkey. I use a new 5-gallon bucket to brine the turkey. Great recipe!!
