Want to know the secret to a moist turkey? Its all in the brine...
Ingredients
  • 1 gallon GF vegetable broth
  • 1 cup salt
  • 1 Tbsp rosemary
  • 1 Tbsp sage
  • 1 Tbsp thyme
  • 1 Tbsp savory
  • 1 Tbsp peppercorns
  • 2 lemons, cut into wedges
  • 5 cloves garlic, unpeeled, lightly crushed
  • Ice cubes
Instructions
  1. Heat all ingredients (except ice) in a saucepan until salt is dissolved. Cool slightly then add enough ice cubes to chill brine.
  2. Put raw turkey in a large enough container to hold it and the brine. Fill with brine (top up with more water if needed to cover turkey). Refrigerate 8-24hrs. Drain, pat turkey dry, and allow to rest at room temperature for one hour prior to roasting.
Notes
If not filling turkey with stuffing, put 2 fresh lemon halves inside the cavity.
