Brine

Posted: February 11, 2010 in Uncategorized

Last week I decided to prepare a brine for an organic turkey breast that was on sale…the brine creates a lot of flavor and also helps it become more tender and juicy.  I used Water, Bay Leaf, Thyme, Chopped Garlic, Kosher Salt, Cider Vinegar, Peppercorns, and Brown Sugar.

After preparing the brine, section the turkey creating two large breasts and leave in the brine for a minimum of 12 hours.  Sear the breasts on the grill to get some nice color and finish in the oven on 350 for about 30 minutes.  Then, allow to cool and slice for some good sandwiches.
