For a 14 -16 lb (6.3-7.2 kg) turkey
  • 1 C (250 ml) Kosher or coarse salt
  • 1/2 C (125 ml) brown sugar
  • 16 C (4 L) water
  • 1/4 C (60 ml) crystallized ginger
  • 1 piece star anise
  • 2 Tbsp (30 ml) Asian Stir-Fry Seasoning
  • 2 Tbsp (30 ml)
  • 1 orange, thinly sliced
  • 16 C (4 L) ice water


  • Combine first 8 ingredients in an Pasta Pot and simmer over medium-high heat. Stir occasionally until salt and sugar have dissolved.
  • Bring to a boil. Remove from heat and cool to room temperature, then refrigerate until ready to use.
  • When ready to brine turkey, stir ice water into prepared brine.



Preparation Tip: You may halve or double the brine. The important thing is to prepare enough to cover the turkey entirely. Allow enough preparation time to ensure the turkey is fully thawed and brine is cold before using. Frequently Asked Questions about Turkey Brining
