The "Balsamic Pear Vinegar" mingles wonderfully with the white cranberry juice, herbs and honey. It’s a great refreshing change of pace for the holiday turkey. Can be used for chicken, pork, seafood and fish.
1/2 gallon of cold water
1 cup sea salt
4 cups Balsamic Pear Vinegar
2 (64 oz.) Ocean Spray White Cranberry Juice
2 sprigs fresh sage or 1 tablespoon dried
2 sprigs fresh thyme or 1 tablespoon dried
4 cloves garlic, minced or 1 1/2 tablespoons dried
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 cup honey
In a large pot combine juices, sea salt, garlic, pepper, herbs and sugar 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.
