Create this easy Orange Herb Brine mix for your Thanksgiving turkey.
Recipe type: Spice Mix
Cuisine: American
Serves: 1 Turkey
  • 1 Cup Kosher Salt
  • 1 Cup Brown Sugar
  • Orange Peel from 1 Orange
  • 1½ tsp whole allspice berries
  • 1½ tsp crystallized ginger (optional)
  • 1 TBS whole peppercorns
  • 2 Bay leaves
  • 4 TBS chopped fresh rosemary
  • 4 TBS chopped fresh sage
  1. Mix all together. I store mine in a Mason Jar until I'm ready to use it. The salt will preserve the mixture and dry out the herbs and orange peel. Put a ribbon on your jar and you have a gift from the heart!
