"Brining a turkey makes for a juicier bird, and this brine--with sage, celery seed, thyme and soy sauce--brings plenty of flavor too."

Made no difference in the juiciness of my bird. Will stick to my own brine.

Made the turkey really juicy and you can't even taste the soy sauce

I did this overnight to my turkey, which I then cooked in my big slow cooker. I also added some peppercorns, and more spices to the slow cooker. Moist and delicious!!!

Absolutely awesome. was the best turkey we have ever had.

This is the first time in about 40 years that I brined a turkey, and it was delicious. The meat was flavorful throughout, everyone raved about their wonderful dinner. Very happy with the results.

Very good, as long as you double the herbs

Made no difference in the juiciness of my bird. Will stick to my own brine.

I used this brine for the first time this year because I didn't have all of the ingredients for my normal brine. It was very delicious! I had to add more water to cover the turkey, but it came...
