OK to brine pork chops in cider brine for 2 days?

Denis | May 1, 2011 06:38 PM

I put some chops in a brine consisting of apple cider, brown sugar, and salt last night, intending to cook them tonight. Due to circumstances beyond my control, however, I couldnt' make them tonight after all.

Will it be OK to leave them in the brine and cook them tomorrow? The total brining time would end up being around 44 hours. The chops are bone-in, about 1-inch thick.

I'd think it should be OK, but this is my first brining adventure so I have no real experience base here.

Thanks.
