Step 1: Brine the Turkey
COMBINE the following brining ingredients in a large, deep bowl:

1 hour and 45 minutes before mealtime...
PREHEAT the oven to 375 degrees.
REMOVE the turkey from the brine, rinse with cool water and pat dry.
PLACE the turkey on a rack in the roasting pan and rub with oil.
ROAST for 90 minutes or until the internal temperature of the turkey registers 165 degrees on a meat thermometer.
LET IT REST for a few minutes out of the oven before carving.
★TIP: Hang on to the juices and little bits of turkey in the roasting pan. You’ll use them later in the ruby red sauce.
