NOTES

Seasonings this brine would pair well with: Asian Delight BBQ Rub, Hidden Cove Lemon Garlic Blend, and Zanzibar Curry.



DIRECTIONS

This recipe yields about 2 Tbsp. brining spices to flavor up to 2 quarts of brine. For 2 quarts of brine, place all ingredients in a small saute pan and toast over medium heat until aromatic, 3 to 4 min, stirring constantly. Add toasted spices to 1 1/2 cups (of your 2 quarts) of brining liquid, along with 1/2 cup salt and 1/4 cup sugar. Bring to a boil for 1 to 2 min. Let the boiled, spiced brine cool completely before adding it back to the remaining brining liquid. Tip: You can speed up the cooling process by adding ice cubes.
