Turkey in Brine

In a pot put 1/4 of the water, add the rest of the ingredients. Bring to boil, reduce the heat and stir continuously until the salt is completely dissolved. Add the rest of the water and let it cool. Submerge the turkey in brine for 24 hours. Remove from the brine, put in on the rack and refrigerate for 24 hours.

Preheat oven at 200C. Remove turkey from fridge 1 hour before roasting. In a roasting tray put all the chopped vegetables and herbs. On top of it a roasting rack with a turkey on it. Brush turkey skin with butter, season with salt, roast for 1 hour. Rotate tray and cook for 1 and 1/2 hours. Allow the turkey to rest at least 30 minutes before carving.

Use the vegetables for gravy. Bake peaches for 30 minutes. Once the gravy is ready add chopped roasted peaches and toasted walnuts.

Enjoy!
