Below is a recipe for a brine that I used last year. Try it out, it was excellent. Any other recommended brines would be appreciated. I like to experiment prior to turkey day.[p]
1 gallon water
1 cup kosher salt
2 TBSP Morton Tender Quick
1 cup honey 3 bay leaves
1/4 tsp ground cloves
1/2 tsp pickling spice
Combine all ingredients in a large pot and heat to 160°F. Temperatures above 160° will harm the flavor of the honey. Remove from heat and cool to room temperature. Makes about 1 gallon of brining solution.[p]
