Holiday Turkey Brine
Create the perfect holiday turkey:
If frozen, defrost and thoroughly wash your turkey or chicken. Place turkey in a tub or pot large enough to cover the bird completely with liquid. In a separate bowl combine 1 cup white wine, 1 cup chicken stock, freshly squeezed juice from 1 lemon and TURKEY TIME brine (amount depends on the weight of your bird). Pour entire brine mixture over the turkey. Then add room temperature water to make certain the turkey is completely submerged. Place into the refrigerator. Allow the turkey to soak a minimum of 24 hours before cooking.
For the dry-brine method: blend the contents of the Turkey Time Brine in a blender or food processor. If frozen, defrost and thoroughly wash your turkey or chicken. Take the well-blended brine and rub it all over the bird, covering it completely in the brine mixture. Place on a dish or into a bowl and cover with wrap or foil. Place into the refrigerator for at least 8 hours before cooking. You do not have to rinse the brine off once you are ready to cook the bird.
