The basic wet brine is one cup of coarse kosher salt or sea salt to one gallon of water, making enough to submerge the bird. We recommend not brining for longer than 12 hours. Herbs, fruits, and seasonings are all great additions to brines so be sure to customize to your tastes!
No, Ferndale Market turkeys are not brined or basted. They do not contain any added salt, water, or fillers of any kind so they are perfect to bring. We don’t add any competing flavors to your holiday traditions, just 100% turkey.
We recommend thawing your turkey for at least 24 hours in the fridge for every 3 pounds of turkey.
