Turkey Marinade

Never before in English, this criollo recipe shows how a good Puerto Rican marinates the Thanksgiving turkey. It is REALLY, REALLY tasty. I burn to try it on a fresh turkey one day.
1 garlic clove (diced)
1 peppercorn (ground)
1/2 tsp. oregano
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. olive oil
1/2 tsp. vinegar
Use the measurements above for each pound of turkey.  Note that I reduced the salt by half from the original recipe which was ridiculous.  So taste the marinade and salt to taste as needed.
Mix all the ingredients with a spoon.
Pour and rub on the surface of the turkey.
Marinate the turkey for two days in the fridge before the day it is cooked. Pour the juice over the turkey a couple times a day.
