Give your next turkey, pork or chicken a bath steeped in southern tradition. Sweet Tea is as old as the South, and this brine is one of a kind with a unique flavor profile. You don't have to wait until Thanksgiving to brine your favorite meats. This ain't your grandmama's brine, but it is her sweet tea.
The reason behind brining is to add extra moisture to the protein that you are brining (Turkey, Chicken, Pork). The salt in the brine also helps to break down some of the proteins in the meat which makes it more tender. Typically used with larger pieces of poultry or pork. However, we absolutely love brining Chicken wings too! Brine is our favorite kind of insurance!
