Sweet tea, oh how we love you on a hot summer day with lemon and lots of ice; or even on a cold winter day with really good fried chicken. Of course sweet tea used to be only served in the south but it has made its way around the country and is swiping the nation as a most popular alternative to soda drinks.So not that we are all acclimated to this thirst quenching beverage I thought I would find another use for itas a brine. Brines are simply water, salt, sugar and any other flavoring you want to add. Its purpose is to rehydrate the cells of the protein that is being brined, (submerged into like a marinade) leaving the finished cooked product moister than you could ever imagine.It is a simple process, as listed below in this recipe for pork chops, so much so that you will want to brine chicken, shrimp or even fish. Fish and shrimp won’t need as long as a brine as a whole chicken, or even these pork chops but will make a noticeable difference on your plate.
