works for me: turkey brine recipe

So, at Thanksgiving we took Pioneer Woman's good advice and brined our turkey using the (now-sold-out) Williams Sonoma turkey brine.

It was fantabulous, but we can no longer purchase the Willliams Sonoma brine, which is just as well as it was a bit pricey. Here is my alternate brine:

Turkey Brine

Combine in kettle & simmer for 10 minutes:
1 C kosher salt
1/2 C light brown sugar
1 t black peppercorns
1 sprig rosemary
1 bay leaf
8 C boiling water

For the rest of the instructions, go see PW's excellent illustrated turkey post.
