Title: Cider brined turkey
Post by: Jimmy K on November 22, 2011, 06:21:56 PM
This year we're going to brine our turkey with our hard cider from last year. I was surprised - when I searched for ideas I found a cider brine recipe from Emeril, so we're going to follow that with a few changes. Our version is below.


2 22oz bottles hard cider (ours)
3 quarts fresh apple cider
2 cups Kosher salt
1/2 cup dark brown sugar
1 tablespoon black peppercorns
1 tablespoon whole allspice
4 cinnamon sticks
4 bay leaves
4 sprigs thyme
4 sprigs rosemary
4 sprigs oregano
1 gallon ice water

What timing.  I just got a free turkey and was thinking "how should I cook it?"

I've got gallons of cider, so that just may be the ticket.
