Honey Brined Turkey

The perfect way to get succulent meat from your holiday turkey!

Ingredients

1 16 pound fresh turkey

Brine:

Instructions

  1. Pour hot water into extra large brining bag, then add salt. Agitate bag to help dissolve salt. Add molasses, soy, and honey and mix to combine. Add turkey with giblets removed. Set in cooler filled with at least 5 pounds of ice. Allow to brine 12 hours or over night.
  2. Make sure to drain turkey well and pat dry before roasting as desired.

Notes

Recipe adapted from my friend, Mary Ann.

Roasting time varies depending on the size of your turkey. Calories and nutrition information isn’t 100% accurate because of the amount of salt, honey and molasses in the brining liquid.

Due to the molasses, the turkey meat may be darker than normal. It will still taste wonderful.
