Brining a turkey is a great way to enhance juiciness and flavor. Brining solutions include salt and seasonings, which help the meat absorb water and infuse flavor while breaking down the proteins for a tender texture. The extra water also helps prevent overcooking and dried out meat. However, home cooks are often reluctant to brine their Thanksgiving turkey due to the time it takes (24 - 48 hours) and the space required (imagine refrigerating a container large enough to submerge a 20 lb turkey in about 2 gallons of brine, especially if the refrigerator is already full of other holiday ingredients).
Mollie’s Brined Turkey eliminates this hassle but results in the same a delicious turkey. Our Brined Turkey is a free-range turkey already brined with an aromatic blend of thyme, sage, rosemary, garlic and salt. We pack it in a vacuum sealed bag so it is easy to transport and store in the refrigerator until you’re ready to roast it. We guarantee it will be one of the most succulent turkeys you’ve ever had!
