Is brining a turkey a safe method?
Yes it is, as long as the raw (thawed) bird is refrigerated during the brining process. The procedure is to dissolve 2 cups kosher salt or 1 cup of non-iodized table salt into two gallons of cold water. Add the turkey and refrigerate for 12 hours. This type of brining is not for preservation purposes (not enough salt) but simply a way to enhance the flavor.
