i love that word, Factoid... been waiting to fit it in somewhere
From "COOKS Illustrated" magazine, very reputable, and scientific cooking magazine..
This is from the November & December, 2006 edition
Brine facts, pg 12, 1st column, paragraph 3...
and I quote............ " While a brined bird shed 19% of its initial weight in the oven, a salted bird shed 22% of its out-of-the-package weight. ( A bird that is neither brined, or salted will shed 28% of its initial weight in the oven)
Start brining boys and girls from Q land !!!!
It's really a good magazine.. local libraries usually have it, if you dont want to buy it..
Aim for Sucess, not perfection
Good Country, This America
