I processed 3 roos today. I'm going to use one for chicken and dumplings - just in case they're tougher than heck. I was going to brine, but I'm not sure if I need to since I'm making soup (I'll boil the bird). So.. I was going to do it anyway, and then I realized I don't have any salt- other than what's in the shaker, and that's not much. I think I have kosher salt in the back of a cabinet somewhere. I have a neighbor who will give me some salt, but I REALLY don't want ot ask unless it's necessary. I do have seasoned salt too.. can you brine in a marinade of sorts.. to give the bird extra flavor? I also have vinegar and wine (white, red and cooking).. there's aso some hard liquor.. after those 3 roos, maybe I'll have some.. Back to te topic at hand, What do I do?? What is NOT a good idea?
