  • Summary

    Why brine? Brining seasons the turkey without making it salty. It also helps draw moisture into the meat for a juicier result. Serve with grilled vegetables or Corn-and-Zucchini Saute with Basil.

    Ingredients

    • 1 1/4 cups coarse salt
    • 1 cup packed light-brown sugar
    • 1 whole turkey breast (5 to 6 pounds), thawed if frozen
