Apple Juice Brined Turkey

  • 2 quarts apple juice
  • 1 gallon cold water
  • 1 cup kosher salt
  • 6 cloves garlic, peeled and crushed
  • 5 pounds ice cubes
  1. Line a cooler with a large food safe bag. Combine the apple juice, water, and salt in the bag; stir until the salt is dissolved; add the garlic.
  2. To use: Lie your turkey into the brine with the breast-side down; add more water to submerge turkey completely if needed. Pour the ice over the turkey. Seal the bag and close the cooler; allow to sit overnight.
