Questions about what ingredients can be used in the brining liquid and how the brining will affect the food.
Brining is similar to marination in which meat is submerged in a liquid. The liquid used in brining will have a higher concentration of salt which will hydrate the cells of the muscle tissues through the process of osmosis. The process will also denature the meat so the cells can hold in the moisture while they are being cooked. This will result in meat that is moist and tender.
