What is Homemade Turkey Brine?
Brining means making a salt water solution and submerging the turkey for about 24 hours before roasting. This spa treatment helps the turkey retain more moisture during roasting and prevents it from drying out.
Homemade Turkey Brine also gives you a chance to season the turkey with herbs and spices, especially the skin! Sage and citrus is one of our favorite combinations. It’s so festive and makes the house smell amazing.
Brine your turkey for 12 to 24 hours. The longer the better, but honestly, even a quick brine does wonders for the turkey. If you only have a few hours before it needs to go in the oven, then it’s still worth doing
