This is the best Brine I have ever come across. No Longer sure where. (America's Test Kitchen?) It only requires 10 mintues prep and 2 hours in the Fridge and is worth every minute! :-)

  2. Stir until salt and sugar are dissolved.
  3. Add the ice cubes and stir until almost all are melted.
  4. Place in a ceramic dish or heavy freezer bag.
  5. Add your meat. be sure it is covered.

  9. ** For the apple cider vinegar try to buy "BRAG ORGANIC-UNFILTERED". Most stores have it, for sure your Health Food Store.
