Can you do anything with brine? I started with pureed apple sauce, apple cider vinegar and the other usual suspects and it tasted salty, spicey and appley (is that a word) as you would expect. For some reason it tasted unusually good. Maybe not enough salt but anyway it got me thinking can I do anything with this. I used it to brine a butt and it started out cool (cold apple sauce) and brined the butt in a 35* fridge (beer fridge). After brining I simmered it down to a apple butter consistencey. Maybe a little thicker and not as brown. Maybe I'ma dummy but I tasted it and it tasted like a good start for a BBQ sauce. SOOOOOOOOOOOO can I do anything with this or should I just be thankful I didn't get sick and thank the brine for a job well done?
