I am going to brine a turkey for Thanksgiving. I am looking for the perfect brine recipe & the time in the brine per pound. Thanks! Julie

    J Appledog,[p]I stick with a simple one (1 cup each kosher salt & brown sugar per gallon of water) since I also put a stuffing under the skin.[p]John Ash had a wonderful brine (maple syrup, ginger, garlic, chiles, other goodies) in Fine Cooking a few years ago. I'll e-mail it to you if you like.[p]Cathy

    I would be interested in that if it isn't too much trouble. Maple syrup and ginger sounds like a great combo.
    Hope you are ready for winter...looks like it is just about here!
