The result is a juicy, tender turkey that is delicious and not too salty. Wet Turkey Brine (Number of servings will depend on the size of the turkey) For an 18-20 lb. bird, combine and mix well: -7 quarts (28 cups) cold water, or enough to cover the bird in its brining container; you may substitute apple juice or cider for some of the water. -.80-.90 lb. of Whole Spice Turkey Brining Blend Rinse your turkey well in cold water, and pat dry inside and out with kitchen towels. Place the bird, breast down, in a large container made of food-grade plastic, stainless steel or glass, or in a brining bag. (Be sure the container will fit in your refrigerator!) Add the water-brining blend mixture, making sure the entire turkey is covered. Place a heavy plate on top of the bird to keep it completely submerged. Refrigerate overnight, or at least 5-6 hours. Next day, remove the turkey from the container, rinse and pat dry with paper towels. Discard the brine. Cook turkey as desired.
