RECIPE: Jacobsen Salt Savory Citrus Brine

A blend of salt, herbs, and spices, with a twist of citrus. Perfect for wet and dry brining any time of the year!

INGREDIENTS:

  • kosher salt, brown sugar, ground peppercorns, onion powder, garlic powder, dried rosemary, dried thyme, dried orange

 

DIRECTIONS:

DRY BRINE

Our Savory Citrus Turkey Brine can be
used to dry brine turkey, chicken and pork. Simply season your poultry or pork to taste and place on a wire rack over a sheet pan in the refrigerator, either uncovered or loosely covered with plastic wrap, for 8-24 hours. Brush off excess brine if necessary and cook according to your favorite recipe.

* For both wet and dry brine applications, we recommend cooking longer at a lower temperature to achieve that perfect golden brown and allow the sugars to caramelize without burning.

WET BRINE

TURKEY (UP TO 14 LBS)

Combine 1 jar (420 grams) with 1 gallon water (3.79 liters). Brine for 12-24 hours.

WHOLE CHICKEN

Combine 2 cups (210 grams) brine with 2 quarts water (2 liters). Brine for 12-24 hours.

1-4 CHICKEN THIGHS, CHICKEN BREAST & PORK CHOPS

Combine 1 cup brine (105 grams) with 1 quart water (1 liter). Brine for 8-12 hours.

For all, remove poultry or pork from brine and pat dry. Do not rinse. Cook according to your favorite recipe*.
