• [...] There are two ways to brine…there’s a dry brine (aka dry rub) and a wet brine. The dry brine is exactly what it sounds like. You rub salt, or a mixture of salt and herbs, on the exterior of the bird and refrigerate it overnight.

    Fantastic! I just happened to have some brine in my pantry leftover from Thanksgiving! I have never made a roast chicken by myself, as the Whole Foods version is just so easy to pick up. But I gave it a go, and it was amazing. My kids asked for seconds and thirds, and two of them even asked if they could take the chicken in their lunch tomorrow too. : ) The brine seasoning I used was Williams Sonoma Citrus & Herb Brining Blend. Thanks for sharing. I always look forward to your new blog entries.
