To guarantee a moist and flavorful turkey, use a brine. Wheatsville’s signature brine mix features the usual salt and sugar but also has a cornucopia of other seasonings including a dash of candied ginger! Packaged in reusable mason jars, just add your own liquid and your chosen bird. You can use fruit juice (apple works just fine), broth, or water. With this pre-mixed brine, it’s very easy to prepare the star of your Thanksgiving dinner! We have this brine featured alongside our other turkey accessories, in close proximity to the meat market.

How to Use Wheatsville’s Signature Brine

You will need:
1 12 oz jar of Wheatsville Turkey & Poultry Brine Mix
1 gallon brining liquid of choice (water, vegetable stock, or fruit juice, such as apple)
1 gallon of heavily iced water
1 turkey (14-16 lb) 1 brining container or bag

Bring the gallon of brining liquid to a boil in large stockpot. Empty jar of Wheatsville Brine with the boiling liquid, stirring to dissolve solids. Remove from heat and allow to cool to room temperature, then refrigerate until ready to use. Ensure brining liquid is chilled before the next steps.

Place thawed turkey and gallon of iced water into a brining container or bag with chilled brine mixture. Keep chilled in refrigerator or place in a cooler with plenty of ice for 12-24 hours. Turkey can be rinsed in cold water before roasting.
