In a large stockpot, combine the vegetable broth, apple juice, sea salt, rosemary, sage, thyme, savory, peppercorns, garlic cloves, and bay leaves.
Bring mixture to a boil, stirring frequently. Cook until salt is dissolved.
Remove broth from heat, and let cool to room temperature.
Have a clean 5-gallon bucket ready with a 10 gallon food safety bag inside. Place broth in the plastic bag. Stir in the ice water.
Make sure you wash and dry your turkey. Remove the innards from inside the chest cavity.
Place the turkey with the breast side down into the brine. You'll want to make sure the cavity gets filled with the broth.
Put the bucket with the turkey in the refrigerator (at minimum overnight).
Remove the turkey and drain off the excess brine. Pat the turkey dry.
Cook the turkey according to instructions. Reserve the drippings for the most fabulous gravy. IMPORTANT NOTE: Brined turkeys cook 30 minutes faster than turkeys that haven't been brined.
