Savory Dry Turkey Brine


This dry brine for turkey is loaded with flavors. The added sugar is going to keep the herbs from giving too harsh a flavor.

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 5 minutes

Yield: Makes enough for a 18 lb turkey


  • 3 tablespoons table salt (4 tablespoons kosher salt)
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 teaspoons dried thyme
  • 2 teaspoons dried rosemary
  • 2 teaspoons dried sage


Combine all ingredients well. I suggest a mortar and pestle to grind the ingredients together.
