Sugar Free Citrus Turkey Brine
I live in Michigan where it's VERY chilly around Thanksgiving, so I put it in the garage. (Locked and with bricks on it and under a chair in case of animals, which I've never had a problem with). Let your turkey soak for 24-48 hours. (I found 24 to be a winner, but a friend of mine swore by the 48 -- but I found it a tad salty.)
Always brine foods in a food-grade, nonreactive container such as a stainless steel or enameled stockpot, a brining bag, or a food-grade plastic bucket. Never use ordinary trash bags, plastic trash cans, or metal buckets or containers not meant for food use.
The nutrition data for this recipe includes the full amount of the brine ingredients. The actual amount of the brine consumed will vary.
