I put a split turkey breast in a wet brine yesterday at noon and went about my day,it was the first 'pool day' of the year... 80º out so we couldn't resist. I made a mental note to pull the bird out at 8pm to dry off...but everything got away from me (it was a really fun day).
I had made a basic brine of:
1/2 cup course kosher salt
1/3 cup brown sugar
6-7 quarts water
(and a boatload of aromatics)
When I got up this morning to make a cup of coffee, I reached into the `fridge for the cream pitcher and saw the pot-o-brine... ARGGGHHH! I forgot! DANG IT!!
So tell me, will the meat be inedible?
Both my husband I don't care for overly seasoned foods, salty is not a good thing to us.
I tried searching here at CT for the answer, I did multiple Internet inquiries, but no where do I find how long is too long to wet brine a turkey breast.
