  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise

BRINED PORK CHOPS & GRILLED FIGS

Serves 10

10 cups water

1.5 cup kosher salt

1 cup local honey

1.5 tbsp black peppercorns

5 sprigs thyme

6 cloves garlic

4 cups ice cubes

10 pork chops, 1.5 inch-thick

Throw all the ingredients (minus the ice cubes and the chops) into a saucepan and cook over medium heat, stirring until the salt and sugar dissolve. Remove from heat and stir in ice cubes.

Once brine is totally cool, place chops in a ziplock bag and allow them to brine in the fridge overnight (about 8 hours). Before cooking, pat them dry and allow them to come to room temp. Cook the same way as the chops above.
