Will brining turkey kill bacteria?
Then, should I rinse turkey after brining?
Leaving the turkey uncovered for the last 4 to 6 hours will help dry—and thus crisp up—the skin. Resist any temptation to rinse the turkey after brining. There will be no trace of salt on the surface and rinsing would only make the skin less prone to browning.
Subsequently, question is, how long can you brine turkey? Pop the turkey into the fridge and let it brine for at least 8 hours (and up to 18 hours). Just don't leave the turkey in the brine for longer than recommended—over-brining can render the bird too salty and turn the texture spongy.
how do you kill bacteria in Turkey?
Roasting the turkey at 325 degrees F kills the bacteria yet produces meat that is moist and tender.
Is brining turkey safe?
Brining Safely Will Bring Tender, Flavorful Meat to the Thanksgiving Table. According to research published in the Journal of Food Science, the salt in the brine dissolves a bit of the protein in the muscle fibers, and allows the meat to absorb the brine and retain moisture during cooking.
