Recipe by Lauren
"The most delicious turkey ever! The brine is well worth the extra time the night before; the result is a juicy, perfectly seasoned turkey. A brined turkey cooks 20-30 minutes faster; keep that in mind when consulting roasting charts. Enjoy!"

I tried it on two turkey breasts at half the recipe and man was it delicious. We're looking forward to trying it on the whole turkey this Thanksgiving!
This is by far the best Turkey we have ever had! It made our Christmas Dinner amazing. It was juicy and tender, not too salty and just a tad sweet. I can guarantee this will make it to our table for every Christmas from here on out!
This is a great method. The apple juice and sugar will lead to an overly browned skin - use an aluminium foil tent to prevent over browning. Use a good thermometer to judge doneness - the internal temp should be at least 165 in the thickest part of the thigh. Very good indeed!
