Your Basic Brine And Beyond

By on April 3, 2015 in Cooking Ideas, Easy Sauces with 0 Comments

Basic BrineFor a simple brine that can work with any protein, combine eight cups of water with half a cup of rock or sea salt and half a cup of light-brown sugar in a large pot. Heat the mixture on high, stirring occasionally, just until the salt and sugar dissolve. Let the brine cool completely before using. Pour it into a large resealable container and add your protein of choice.

But why stop at basic brine ? With this simple mixture as your base, you can add flavour with apple juice, honey, chillies, garlic cloves, bay leaves, orange peel, peppercorns and /or rosemary, to name a few.

No matter what you use to flavour your liquid, make sure the brine covers the protein completely so it can penetrate evenly – and always keep both brine and protein covered and refrigerated.
