I have used our candied jalapeño brine in our chili and have loved the spicy, sweet flavor it imparts to the chili. It was not until David on our Facebook page suggested we try the candied garlicky pickle brine that I even considered trying it . With such a recommendation we could not let it pass the next time we made chili. WOW! It added that sweetness that cut the tomato acidity taste and the flavor of the brine added the finishing touch to the chili. I think it will be my “secret ingredient” from now on! I’m sure we would win a chili contest!!!
