Oaktown Spice Shop Brine Mix
Enhance the flavor on your chicken or turkey with a signature brine from Oaktown Spice Shop. Each blend is hand-mixed in Oakland using freshly ground spices. Choose from classic or smoky.
The Brine mix makes 1.5 gallons of brine—enough for one medium turkey, or two whole chickens. For an extra-large turkey, pick up two packages of brine mix!
Instructions: add contents of packet to 3 qts of water and simmer for 10 min. Allow to cool, then add enough ice to solution to make 6 qts total liquid. Pour brine into double-lined plastic bag containing bird and refrigerate for 8-12 hrs (overnight). Rinse and pat dry before cooking.

ABOUT THE PROGRAM
We are foragers. Collecting and curating the best of the best is the Cream Co. core.
For years we've traversed the West Coast meeting ranchers, farmers, chefs, artisan producers, and tinkerers of all stripes. We're driven by meat, but we've picked up some delicious meat-adjacent goods along the way.
The Cream Co. Pantry is a way to make some of our favorite items from our personal pantries and kitchens available to you, and help spread the word for producers we love.
