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.

Ingredients

Makes
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

Methods/steps

In a large stockpot, add the salt and maple syrup to the prepared stock, then stir in the apple cider and peppercorns. Bring the mixture to a boil, stirring to dissolve the salt completely.  Add the ice water to cool the stock and refrigerate overnight or until the brine is completely chilled.
