Wet Turkey Brine

(Number of servings will depend on the size of the turkey)

For an 18-20 lb. bird, combine and mix well:
7 quarts (28 cups) cold water, or enough to cover the bird in its brining container; you may substitute apple juice or cider for some of the water
.80-.90 lb. of Whole Spice Turkey Brining Blend

Rinse your turkey well in cold water, and pat dry inside and out with kitchen towels.
Place the bird, breast down, in a large container made of food-grade plastic, stainless steel or glass, or in a brining bag. (Be sure the container will fit in your refrigerator!)
Add the water-brining blend mixture, making sure the entire turkey is covered.
Place a heavy plate on top of the bird to keep it completely submerged.
Refrigerate overnight, or at least 5-6 hours.
Next day, remove turkey from container, rinse and pat dry with paper towels. Discard the brine.

Cook turkey as desired.
