Went to my friend Heidi"s house for Thanksgiving. She found a brine recipe for turkey. That is out of this world. It had so much favor and so, so moist.. She did make a few changes to the recipe, that put it over the top. I am stealing that recipe. She posted it to her blog. http://mysimplecountryliving.blogspot.com But here is her secret Yes Heidi I.am giving it away..( for the good of mankind and it's stomach..) Add twice the amount of brown sugar that you add of salt. So if the recipe calls for 1/2 cup of salt, you add 1 cup of brown sugar.. She made 3 turkeys. All a little different ,but all every good. Every thing was great I think I gained 10 pounds in one night, but it was so worth it!
