I was so disappointed when I realized I had purchased a Butterball turkey, which has basting added to it and so you can't brine it or it ends up too salty. So, having a bright idea, I called the folks at Butterball and they confirmed my idea. If you want to brine your turkey, and find the one you purchased already has added basting to it, simply don't add salt to your brine. So, my brine will consist of apples and juice, oranges and juice, lemons and juice, vegetable broth, garlic, rosemary, thyme, sage, summer savory and onions. NO SALT. They said at Butterball that I could still brine my turkey as long as I cut down on the salt I used in it. I will also, when I roast the bird, stuff it with apples, oranges, lemans, celery, garlic and the herbs inside the cavity as well as a butter of butter, savory, sage, thyme, garlic and Rosemary put under the skin. I will let everyone know how it turns out.
