This week, Chef Matt McPherson from Matt’s Red Rooster Grill shares with us his amazing Three-Day Thanksgiving Turkey Brine recipe. (Thank you, Matt!)
Three-Day Turkey Brine
What You’ll Need:
1 gallon fresh apple cider
6 garlic cloves, crushed
1 sweet Vidalia onion, medium dice
1 ½ cups light brown sugar
1 ½ cups kosher salt
20 whole black pepper corns
3 bunches fresh thyme
2 juniper berries crushed
1 star anise, crushed
4 bay leaves broken
What To Do:
— Mix above ingredients together.
— Place turkey in mixture and place it in the refrigerator for 24 hours.
— Rinse lightly and air dry in the refrigerator for 24 hours. This will ensure a crisp skin.
— Combine 1/4 cup olive oil, ¼ cup melted butter with juice and zest of 2 oranges, salt and pepper, 1 bunch of fresh thyme, chopped. Mix together and rub the turkey, roast in the oven and enjoy. (see note)
