A perfectly seasoned and juicy turkey. My friend from France taught me to cook turkey like this, but she never measures anything so use your own judgment for vegetable amounts, etc. I usually err on the side of 'more is better'!
Made this for an early Christmas dinner we had with some relatives. The wine is a great idea - it keeps the turkey really moist. Made my own stuffing, too. I'll submit the recipe soon. - 08 Dec 2008

Just a quick tip on how to brine a turkey, especially when your fridge is full of other holiday goodies! Ive done it this way for a few years now, and it works great. Instead of soaking in the stock pot overnight, I put the turkey & brine mixture in a oven bag, squeeze out the air, and tie it shut. Put the bagged turkey in a cooler with ice overnight. - 04 Nov 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
