(half cup per gallon of liquid.) Brown Sugar - 1/2 cup per gallon liquid. Best to have all the juices very cold before you start
Cooking Instructions:
first, you need to decide how much total liquid you'll need to cover whatever your brining. Put it in whatever container your using and fill it with water to cover the bird. remove the bird, and rough measure the amount of water you needed. This receipe is assuming 3 gallons total liquid. Adjust the liquid ingredients accordingly. To make the brine, putt about 2-3 cups of water and a quart of apple juice in a pot. add all the ingreidents EXCEPT THE SALT!!!!. Get it boiling and then simmer covered for about 15 minutes then remove the cover and boil for another 5-10 minutes. This is the concentrated tea. When its done, remove about 2 cups of the tea and set aside, refridgerated, for later. You'll use this to inject into the bird later. Add the salt to your brining container and add the remaining concentrated tea.. Add ALOT OF ICE NOW to cool the tea. Add the half the apple juice and half the cranberry and orange juice and put in the bird. Then fill to cover the bird with either remaing juices or ice cold water. Important to keep things cold here. Cover and brine for at least 24 hours. When done. Get the tea you set aside, melt 2 sticks of butter and add the tea to it and warm it a bit. Add some juices(apple ,cranberry, orange) and inject it into the bird. Then cook however you like.
