I have a 18 lb frozen turkey. Started to thaw it out today in refridgerator. I want to "brine" the turkey. How do I do this? When? Thanks
It's about 24 hrs for 5lbs, so figure 3 days. Brining usually takes 24-48 hours, I don't know if this is feasible.
You can thaw it out faster in cold water. I would thaw it out in the fridge for the next two days, then brine it wednesday afternoon. The cold water and salt will help it defrost so it should be ready to go Thursday morning.
