Adapted from Chez Panisse Café Cookbook, by Alice Waters and found at thesplendidtable.com. This is fantastic and really makes meat juicy and subtly-spiced/flavoured. It acts as a marinade and a cure at the same time, producing pork a bit like a mild ham. A pork loin or shoulder will need to sit in brine, completely submerged, for about 5 days; large chops will be ready in 2 or 3. Cooking time is not realistically reflected in this recipe as it depends on what you are cooking (whole loin or chops). Cooking times are indicated in instructions, though.
