Have you thought about your Thanksgiving bird yet? Let us help you make it the juiciest EVER!
It’s the hot new culinary trend that’s got everyone from celebrity chefs to home cooks buzzing. But even though brining may be the latest technique to sweep kitchens, it’s hardly new.
Mankind has been brining since ancient times. It probably started out, hundreds of millennia ago, as a way of preserving seafood with sea salt. The technique has come a long way since, and now food lovers everywhere, in typical what’s-old-is-new-again fashion, are rediscovering the benefits of brining.
And what benefits there are—moistness, flavor and tenderness. Just ask any Thanksgiving veteran: Brining is the trick to preparing a show-stopping bird. But don’t let the show stop there. Brining’s virtues go way beyond holiday birds. Veggies, nuts, cheeses and even watermelon rind are more mouthwatering when steeped in brine. And best of all, brining is the essence of DIY simplicity. All it takes is salt, water and hands free time and you’re ready to start brinestorming!
