Brining Kit ~ DIY$16.00
Brining is a simple process for lean meats, like poultry, pork and shrimp, to make them juicier and more flavorful.
Brining involves two processes: (1) salt dissolves proteins in the meat, allowing the fibers to relax and soften, and (2) muscle fibers absorb liquid (mostly water), plumping and softening the meat. Make sure that your meat has not been brined before you buy it (e.g. “extra tender” pork and most turkey breast roasts are pre-brined with salt or sodium phosphate).
The spices in this brown bag kit are intended to make 2 gallons of brining solution, enough for a 12-14 pound turkey or two whole chickens. A very large turkey may need up to three gallons; additional brining spices can be purchased at Local Spicery.
What You Need: This kit includes a large pouch of sea salt, a pouch of brining spices, a brining bag large enough for a 24-lb turkey, and a zip-tie closure for the bag. You will need a large stock pot (at least 8-quart) and a way to chill your meat for up to 24 hours — a 5-gallon bucket to put in your refrigerator or a large ice chest with ice to pack around the meat.
The Brining Brown Bags come in two flavor profiles:
French Herbs: Saturates your meat with the flavors of Tarragon, Basil, Dill, and Orange Peel for an authentic French country flavor;
Chetumal: Delivers a spicy, Yucatecan flavor through Paprika, Chiles, and Mexican Oregano.
Curry Gift Box$31.00
Curry, from the Tamil word Kari, meaning sauce, generally refers to a dish cooked in a blend of aromatic spices. Although originally from the Indian Subcontinent, Curries are culturally significant throughout Asia, Africa & the Caribbean.
To prepare a simple curry sauce:
Chop onions (plus shallots and/or garlic as desired), and sauté on medium heat in olive oil until softened.
Add a curry spice blend to achieve the level of spiciness you desire.
Add chopped tomato, if desired, and cook until soft.
Add a liquid or combination of liquids, (coconut milk, stock, yogurt, tea infusions or water).
Pour over your preferred meat and/or vegetables in a casserole dish. Cover and place in a 375° oven until cooked, usually around 45 minutes.
