Citrus Brining Mix
We crafted our Citrus Brining Mix to have a citrusy, savory flavor. Use about 1 oz of the blend per pound of turkey or other protein. A 4 oz packet will brine a chicken or other smaller proteins. An 8 oz packet will brine a small turkey and most other meats. A 16 oz packet will brine an average 16-20 turkey. Adjust amount with weights.
If you are not using a brining recipe, measure enough water to completely cover the turkey, chicken, pork, or other protein. Bring the water to a boil in a large pot. Add the spices and stir until the salt and sugar have dissolved. Remove from heat. Let cool to room temperature before pouring over the turkey or other protein in a non-reactive container or brining bag. You can add some ice to cool it faster.
Cover, refrigerate and let sit in the brining solution for about an hour per pound of protein. When the brining time is done, remove turkey or other protein from the solution. Discard the brining solution, thoroughly rinse and pat to dry. Refrigerate again until you are ready to cook, allowing the outside to dry completely.
Our Citrus Brining Mix will add a great flavor to not just poultry and pork, but also shrimp, fish, tofu or tempeh, beef briskets and more.
We also created a Citrus Brining Herbs without the salt and sugar so you can either use as is or add your own salt and sugar. It contains the same spices
We also have several great tasting rubs to use on your turkey, chicken or other poultry. Take a look at our Backwoods Turkey, Wild Texas Turkey Too, Sweet Turkey Wurky and Poultry Seasoning. Our Chipotle Honey Rub is our most popular Spice Blend is most widely used on chicken, pork and other poultry, all of which brine well.
Contains: Salt, Sugar, Orange Peel, Black Peppercorns, Onion, Garlic, Allspice Berries, Bay Leaf & Spices.
