With Brown Sugar
Brining meat adds flavour from the inside out. In the brining process, the salt denatures meat's proteins, softening muscle fiber and allowing tons of flavor and moisture to flow into the meat... BYE dried out Thanksgiving turkey!
05 MINCED GARLIC
06 Orange Peels
Combine water with brown sugar, salt, minced garlic, peppercorns, the outer peels from four oranges (use a peeler to avoid the pith and to get mostly zest). At this point you can add in your favourite herbs and spices to add more depth to the brine including bay leaves rosemary sprigs
Whisk all ingredients in a large pot or bucket until the salt and sugar are fully dissolved. Place turkey in the wet brine in a large stock pot, bucket, or other vessel for 18-24 hours in the refrigerator.
