Change up your turkey with a cranberry sweet tea brine! This recipe, brought to you by GreenZeta and Turkey Volume Guessing App, adds an exotic sweet citrus flavor that's like nothing you've had before. The process requires a bit of planning ahead as the turkey must sit in the brine 24 hours before cooking.
One trick I like to use: Start the turkey upside down and then flip it halfway through. It allows the juices to flow downward into the breast, preventing it from drying out, but not long enough to become soggy. It requires very little basting. The end result is a perfectly roasted turkey that's juicy throughout.
