    1. Apple Cider Brine: In a large stock pot over medium-high heat, add the Apple Cider Brine ingredients: 3 cups apple cider, juice from 4 oranges, 2 gallons cold water, 4 Tbs. fresh rosemary leaves, 1 Tbs. crushed sage, 2 Tbs. minced onions, 5 cloves minced garlic, 1/2 cup kosher salt, 2 cups brown sugar, 2 Tbs. freshly cracked black pepper, 6 orange slices, 1 tsp. crushed red pepper (optional). Bring the brine to a boil. Then remove the brine from the hot stove and let it cool to room temperature.
    2. Place the thawed, unwrapped turkey in a brining bag or in a large container, and pour the cooled Apple Cider Brine over the turkey.
    3. Seal the bag and refrigerate it for 12 to 24 hours. The larger the turkey, the longer it should remain in the brine.
