Fresh Herb-Brined Turkey
Total TimePrep: 40 min. + brining Bake: 2-1/2 hours + standing
Sooo good. The turkey and broth made the best dressing ever.
Came out great. I used less salt than called for because I had a pre-basted turkey and was worried about it being too salty, and I didn't notice the footnote. Next time I will use the full amount of salt except not sprinkle it on the outside. I will definitely make this again. Turkey did not brown as well as the skin seemed soggy but I didn't care.
This was the first time I've use brine on a turkey. I certainly kept the turkey moist. The herbs and spices looked beautiful. They smelled wonderful.
