For the brine:
1 cup kosher salt
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1 gallon vegetable stock
1 tablespoon black peppercorns
1/2 tablespoon allspice berries
1/2 tablespoon candied ginger
1 gallon iced water

For the aromatics:
1 red apple, sliced
1/2 onion, sliced
1 cinnamon stick
1 cup water
4 sprigs rosemary
6 leaves sage
Canola oil

Directions
Combine all brine ingredients, except ice water, in a stockpot, and bring to a boil. Stir to dissolve solids, then remove from heat, cool to room temperature, and refrigerate until thoroughly chilled.
Early on the day of cooking, (or late the night before) combine the brine and ice water in a clean 5-gallon bucket. Place thawed chicken breast side down in brine, cover, and refrigerate or set in cool area (like a basement) for 6 hours to 24 hours.

Does the type of salt used make a difference? I brined some chicken pieces a few weeks back... I used 1/2 cup each salt and sugar. Salt was basic table salt (Morton Iodized), not kosher, sea salt etc.... Both wife and one of my kids immediately commented that it was really salty - and neither knew I had brined it.


Yes, if you read Brining 101, yes different salts have different effect. Think about the fact that all salts aren't the same size granules, so one granule of kosher isn't the same as one of table salt.

Question: Why Kosher Salt? Canít I use table or regular sea salt?

Answer: There are some very significant differences in the amount of salt, by weight in kosher salt vs. regular salt. You canít substitute them one for one. I suggest the larger, coarser Kosher so that you get a more consistent brine. If you MUST use regular salt, I would recommend decreasing salt by Ĺ the amount to start with.

I'd say this last piece would give you a good guess as to why it came out salty.

If I am not mistaken, most table salt is iodine in it, sea and Kosher salt does not.
