No brine flavor goes through the turkey so the flavor remains. You marinated the turkey in another words. The turkey is very tasty after bringing.
Mix product with water and soak poultry. I have used this on Turkey and chicken. Love it for turkeys. I will always brine my turkeys!
Salt, herbs and tangy sweet from the cranberries. It is not overpowering but very flavorful if you follow the directions on the jar. Happy Thanksgiving
No, just dry and roast as brining ensures the bird is salted enough. Happy Thanksgiving
Good morning My turkey was 12 pounds and I used all of the packet to brine my turkey.
Yes it does. Very strong, sturdy bag that held my 21lb. turkey.
I wanted to try something different this year and decided to try the turkey brine. I normally inject the turkey with flavoring prior to frying and have had good results. I prepared the brine as instructed (easy to follow instructions) and soaked the turkey overnight. After frying my turkey, I could see the immediate results from using the brine. Turkey was much tender, skin was easier to remove, meat was easy to separate from the bone and the aroma was amazing.…
…I used this to sous vide a whole turkey in a 5 gallon bucket. …I cooked it at 145 degrees until the turkey also reached that temp, and let it remain there for about an hour. Then I browned the turkey in the oven on broil. Everyone raved about it, saying it was the best and most moist turkey they'd ever had.…Couldn't be happier, and have now started a new tradition for how to cook my turkeys.
That's exactly what's it's made for, to brine turkey with it.
Yes most definitely. Makes a great turkey. Have a great holiday.
Yes, that is a great idea.
I used as a wet brinein that the turkey was packed in ice. It was delicious Put it on dry
…Ok not the nine itself but after soaking my turkey in it for days the turkey was the most well salted well flavored juicy and succulent turkey I have ever had and I was proud I MADE it using this brine as a marinade and season and salting for the turkey! I've decided I'm always coming back for this when I need to roast a turkey!!!…
I just followed directions on the bag and the turkey was covered. -2 quarts, maybe? It was delicious. I put lemons and onions inside the bird followed a recipe similar to this https://natashaskitchen.com/juicy-roast-turkey-recipe/ and got a moist, tasty bird. Don’t use the brine for gravy. It will be too salty v
I have not used it as a dry Brine. But have used it as a traditional brine and it was a very moist turkey. Everyone raved about it,& will use it again.
5 quarts of water should be enough. However, the most important thing is that the entire turkey is submerged in the brine solution. If you need to, you can add more water if the entire turkey is not covered. Make sure you put your turkey in the brine bag "breast side" down. Put the turkey and brine bag in the ice chest, surround the outside of the brine bag with ice up to top of the turkey then pour your brine solution into the brine bag and seal, then cover the top of the turkey with ice. The ice keeps the brine solution around the turkey- liquid wants to displace or go flat and keeps the turkey cold while its brining- Enjoy!
Yes, rinse the turkey once it has finished soaking in the brine- Enjoy!
The thawed turkey needs to be fully submerged in the brine solution and soak overnight. If you have an incredibly large turkey, you could go longer. I personally buy the biggest turkey I can find for our feast 23-25 pounds, soak the turkey overnight in the brine solution (12-15 hours) then roast and it has been perfect and delicious every time. In my opinion, a longer soak (24-48 hours) is not necessarily better. Note, a brined turkey can be roasted, smoked or deep fried- whatever makes you happy- Enjoy!
Great question. No, you do not have to use it- they turkey will be delicious without it. However, if you do use the vinegar, it open the pores of the meat more which allows for more penetration of the brine solution which makes for a better turkey. Either way, you will be happy- Enjoy!
