Since it’s Tuesday, we will add the turkey, a gallon of ice and water, and the brine Wednesday evening, then let it soak overnight.

On Thursday we will take 1 chopped apple, 1 chopped onion, 1 cup of white wine and microwave it for 2 – 3 minutes. We will place that mixture into the turkey, the bake the turkey at 500 degrees fro 30 minutes. After that, we will place a tinfoil shield over the turkey breasts, then bake at 350 degrees for 2 to 2 1/2 more hours.  I will post more pictures as we go.
