I rarely cook pork chops but tonight I am going to grill some nice thick center cut chops that have some of the bone left on them.
I made a simple brine using one cup each of salt and light brown sugar.
I was out of kosher so I used some old sea salt that had hardened. I was trying to dissolve both in one cup of boiling water. Not happening so I added another cup. Still notta. Salt would not completely dissolve in even three cups of water.
So then I go get a fresh box of kosher salt and guess what? Almost the same results.
After a google session I learn that salt will not dissolve once the water is saturated.
I knew I should have elected to take chemistry in high school.
