Brine For Truffled Turkey

Today's recipe is...

Brine For Truffled Turkey

2 gallons cold water
1 cup kosher salt
3/4 cup sugar
1 tablespoon peppercorns

Pour the cold water into a 5 gallon bucket or stock pot. (If you're using a bucket, make sure its been thoroughly cleaned). Dissolve the salt and sugar in a little bit of warm water, and add it to the cold water. Add the peppercorns and any other seasoning you might want to flavor the bird. Place the bird breast-side down in the bucket and cover. Store the bucket in a cold, dry place (like your refrigerator) and turn the bird once during brining. A 10-pound turkey should brine about 6 to 10 hours. A breast should soak for at least 4 hours and a duck for 2 hours. Once brining is done, pat the meat dry and cook it immediately.
