Brined Turkey Breast With Peach Rosemary Glaze

“This makes such delicious and moist turkey! I have changed the glaze before using dark cherries and cranberries instead of the peaches and that is scrumptious as well. I had to roast it longer to get to 165 degrees, about 40 minutes more, so you may want to plan on extra time. Prep time does not include brining time. This is from Sunny Anderson of Food Network.”
