Ingredients

Scale

*All measurements are based upon a 17.5 pound turkey 

TURKEY BRINE

  • Chicken broth, enough to cover turkey (mine took 13 cups)
  • 1 tablespoon Himalayan pink salt
  • 10 garlic cloves
  • 5 sprigs fresh thyme
  • 23 large sprigs rosemary
  • 4 sage leafs

HERB TURKEY INJECTION

TURKEY STUFFING

  • 1 large or 2 small sweet onions
  • 3 ribs celery
  • 6 garlic cloves
  • 3 sprigs rosemary 

Instructions

  1. Begin by thawing your turkey (if frozen), and rinsing.
  2. Mix ingredients for Turkey Brine in a large pot that you can fit in your fridge. Place turkey in brine, and allow to soak overnight in the refrigerator (8-12 hours).
  3. Once finished soaking in brine, place turkey in roaster pan (preferably one with a lid included), and preheat oven to 325ºF.
  4. Combine ingredients for turkey injection, and blend with a stick blender until smooth and creamy.
  5. Place in turkey injector, and inject evenly throughout the entire turkey. 
  6. Chop celery and onions, and place all ingredients for stuffing inside the turkey. 
  7. Cover your turkey (preferably with a lid for lower toxins, but aluminum foil or a bag work the same if you’re in a pinch), and place in the oven to cook. (Cook time is completely dependent on the size of your turkey). 
  8. Remove cover 30 minutes before turkey is ready to brown skin.
  9. Remove from oven, drizzle in gravy, and serve. Enjoy!
