Cranberry Balsamic Vinegar Brine


This "Cranberry Balsamic Vinegar Brine" recipe is by far one of my best poultry brine's brings out a nice flavor, not overpowering, that makes the poultry extremely delicious. Shockingly, the spices are mild and enjoyable.


Ingredients

1/2 gallon of cold water
1 cup sea salt
4 cups balsamic vinegar
2 (64 oz.) Ocean Spray White Cranberry Juice
6 cloves garlic, minced or 2 tablespoons dried
1 teaspoon white pepper
2 bay leaves

Directions

In a large pot combine vinegar, juice, sea salt, garlic, and bay leaves over a medium heat.

Simmer for about 15 - 20 minutes.

Remove from heat and allow brine to cool.

Add cold water.

Pour brine over the top of the turkey, cover the pot or the seal bag, and refrigerate 6 - 24 hours.
