The warming flavours of cinnamon, cloves and orange combine to create an unmistakably festive combination, making them the ideal ingredients for a brine used on a Thanksgiving turkey or homemade Christmas ham. This recipe makes 3 litres of brine – as the meat needs to be totally submerged in the solution, make sure this will be enough to cover your meat beforehand, and scale up (or down) as required.
