Thanksgiving is perhaps the biggest cooking day of the year and "GMA" viewers turned to Sara Moulton for help with the big meal. Her recipe for a classic and simple turkey brine was one of the most popular recipes of the year.
Moulton writes that "this recipe makes three quarts of brine, enough for a 10- to 25-pound turkey. All of the spices and herbs in this recipe add great flavor; if you can't find one for some reason, don't worry, just leave it out."
