  • Let boil for 2-3 minutes, then remove from heat.
  • Let brine cool to room temperature.
  • Remove the turkey roast from the packaging (leave string netting in place) and place in a large bowl or pot with a lid.
  • Pour cooled brine and iced water over the turkey roast.
  • Cover and refrigerate for 10-14 hours.

To cook the turkey roast:

  • Remove the turkey roast from the brine. Discard the brine liquid.
  • Place the turkey roast in a 6-quart slow cooker.

  • Add parsley, sage, thyme, tarragon, and peppercorns to the slow cooker.
  • Pour chicken broth over the turkey roast.
