This flavorful brine is perfect for pork, but it also works well on poultry. It has a sweet flavor in addition to all the herbs and spices.
3 cups (710 milliliters) water
1 cup (240 milliliters) honey
1/2 cup (120 milliliters) brown sugar
1 onion, thinly sliced
4 garlic cloves, crushed
2 tablespoons (30 milliliters) peppercorns
2 tablespoons (60 milliliters) fresh rosemary
1 tablespoon (15 milliliters) salt
1 tablespoon (15 milliliters) mustard seed
1 bay leaf
1/2 teaspoon (1 1/4 milliliters) ground nutmeg
Combine all ingredients in a saucepan and bring to a boil.
Remove from heat and allow to cool completely.
Place with pork in a large container making sure that brine completely covers the pork. Cover and refrigerator for 6 hours for smaller items like chops, and up to 24 hours for larger cuts.
