Pork sometimes roasts up so dry, doesn’t it? I’ve been chatting with a friend who always ‘brines’ hers. She insists that it makes a huge difference. So I am going to try her recipe.
Brine for Six Chops
6 cups water
3 tablespoons of salt
3 tablespoons of sugar
Mix well. Pour over chops. Place in fridge for at least an hour before cooking.
Drain and cook in favorite recipe.
I don’t expect the chops think this is a great idea. Imagine them chatting over the situation!
“I’ve never been so insalted in my life.”
“This cannot be good for us.”
“That salt will alter our flavor!”
“Momma told me there’d be days like this!”
“What will the children think?”
God recommends brining for all of us. When it happens, let’s go with the flow, right into the recipe for which God created us.
You are the salt of the earth, but if salt has lost its taste (its strength, its quality), how can its saltness be restored? It is not good for anything any longer but to be thrown out and trodden underfoot by men. (Matthew 5:13, AMP).
Prayer: Lord, may we stop complaining and plunge into Your saltiness. Amen.
