Maple and Apple Cider Brine

Try a different brine for this year's holiday turkey! This one will transport the flavors of dark, sweet maple syrup and tart apples into your beautifully browned bird.


enough brine for a 12- to 14-pound turkey
  • 1 cup kosher salt
  • 2 cups pure maple syrup
  • 3 ounces Veggie-Stock Gold® dissolved in 2 quarts hot water
  • 2 quarts apple cider
  • 1 tablespoon black peppercorns
  • 1 gallon ice water
  • 4 apples, cut in eighths and cored
