    you can't take salt out of it, not possible.  If you want less salt don't buy a pre-brined turkey

    Did you buy one that has a salt solution injected into it?  Then you are stuck, you can't get it out.

    Honestly I would use some lemon and other spices it will neutralize the salt to some extent. Hope this helps.

    I honestly don't think you need concern yourself about the salt content in a turkey. Sure it will have salt, sure some of it will be natural from the turkey, sure they will have added a bit in production but, did I say you don't have to concern yourself about the salt content? 

    .

    More than likely you're gonna find more salt in a 200grm bag of Doritos.

    I dont think you can 'take it out', you could try to mask it by not salting what your'e eating it with, veg, potatoes e.t.c.

    Make soup out of it. Or turkey stew with plenty of potatoes. Potatoes soak up salt.

      Actually you and Mog are correct!!! making soup with a few potatoes was perfect.  Thanks so very much.
