TURKEY BRINE RECIPE
By Executive Chef Anthony Bucco

14-16 lb turkey
3/4 cup plus 2 tbsp. kosher salt
3/4 cup sugar
2 bay leaves
1 tbsp. black peppercorns
1 tbsp. coriander seeds
1/4 tsp. clove
1/4 tsp. fennel seeds
2 star anise
2-3 sprigs fresh thyme
2-3 sprigs fresh rosemary

In a large stockpot (16 quart or more) bring 2 gallons of water to a boil.

Over low heat, toast hard spices, about 3 minutes, moving regularly, to prevent burning.

Add salt and sugar to boiling water and stir until dissolved. Turn off heat, add herbs and toasted hard spices. Refrigerate till cold.

Add the turkey, oven ready, so no giblets, to the stock pot. Weigh down with a plate if necessary to keep turkey entrenched in the brine. Refrigerate 8-24 hours, then remove from brine and allow turkey to come to room temperature.
