Going to a friend's today for Thanksgiving and she has brined her turkey... does the turkey really absorb a lot of the salt in the process? I want to let my 8.5mo old try it (he eats chicken) but I'm afraid it will be too salty for him. Thoughts?<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eat.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Eat"><br><br>
Happy Thanksgiving!<br>

Well, as long as you cook it first. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
It really doesn't, and we brine ours every year. The meat really doesn't taste salty at all. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> Enjoy!

Not the slightest bit saltier than normal. I always brine my turkey, it turns out fantastic that way.

Yup, fine.<br>
I soaked my 8lb turkey breast in brine overnight and it still wasn't too salty.<br>
It really only makes the turkey moister and tastier, and crispier on the skin.
