Turkey is in the brine. 

The first major step of my annual turkey ritual is complete.

Tom's Turkey Brine

Gently boil the following for about 3 minutes:
As the brine concentrate, above cools, clean and prep the turkey.
Line a suitable large container with clean tall kitchen garbage bag.
Place turkey breast down in the lined container. Add the following to the container:
Remove as much air as possible from the bag and tie tightly closed to prevent leaks. Remember to slosh the bird back and forth a few times to let any air trapped inside escape. If needed pack paper towels around the bag / inside the container to make sure that the bird is submerged.
Cover the container and place in the refrigerator or in another area that will be between 33 and 40 degrees F for the 12 to 16 hours of soaking time (typically overnight).

Tomorrow ... Basting the Bird!
