Brine is salt water used to pickle or preserve foods. Brining flavors and tenderizes meat and poultry before cooking.
Kosher salt is characterized by larger grains than table salt and is free of the additives used in table salt to keep the grains from clumping. Cooks favor kosher salt for its purity and use it for brine and for other preparations that rely on salt.
