Rinse your turkey and remove all the innards (neck, giblets…). Pat it dry
In a large saucepan, mix 4 cups of the water with the salt, peppercorns, mustard seeds, bay leaves, and coriander.
Bring to a boil, and stir until all the salt has dissolved. Cool.
Place the turkey in a container large enough to hold it and all the brine. You can use a stock pot, a cooler, a bucket – whatever, as long as it is clean. Make sure to clean the container (with bleach) after you are done brining the turkey!
Add the remaining water (24 cups), wine, garlic, onions, fresh thyme and cranberries.
Let your turkey soak in the brine for about 12-24 hours, in the fridge. We did 24.
You should turn the turkey once during the brining process.
Once your turkey is done brining, remove it from the mixture and rinse.
