What better way to brine a turkey than with cranberries? This turkey brine is perfect for a traditional dinner. The slight acid of this brine really helps carry flavor into the meat.
- Combine ingredients and place in a large pot. Add turkey to pot, making sure that brine covers turkey. If not, add more water to the mixture. Brine for 1 hour per pound.
- Thoroughly rinse all the brine from the turkey, inside and out, before cooking. Otherwise, there will be a salty flavor to the turkey.
