We now have K.L. Keller Brine Mix in our bulk foods section, just in time for your holiday birds. Here’s what they have to say:
“Because we sell some of the best salts in the world and chefs really like us, it was easy to go to our favorite chef with our Spanish sea Salt and chat about the “Turkey brine vision thing”… and voila! and now we have it!!! The CLASSIC is pure Americana with a salted, briny subtext of sage, cracked pepper, bay and some ….umm… secret stuff. It is for the traditional bird. “
For a 14-16 lb bird:
Dissolve 2 cups of brine mix in 2.5 gallons of water. Add 1 head fresh garlic, smashed. Submerge bird in dissolved brine solution in a non-corrosive pot or food grade plastic. Cover and refrigerate for about 24 hours. When ready to cook, rinse off brine solution, pat bird dry with towel, stuff and cook your favorite way.
For chicken, use half the above recipe, and brine no more than 6 hours.
