1, the innards of the goods, and the spices such as nutmeg, grass fruit, mountain nai, dahurica, sand kernel, and beamel, etc., to add flavor.

2, for meat, chicken and duck, soy products, the general spice drop is relatively reduced, both to remove odors and add aroma, and to maintain the unique aroma of raw materials, which is the taste.

3, brine in the medicine bags for the first time to cook for 40 minutes or so will scoop out(or medicine fragrance too big), so use after three or four times, aroma, need to pack a hopper, boil a second, the first can also in it, so that the second package only need to cook for 20 to 30 minutes can remove, the first synthetic to about six or seven times is a waste, and to remove to throw away, the wrapped the third, so endure when brine can always ensure that there are two cartridge in it.

2, if you want to make the marinade, you should make two different kinds of cardamom and sand kernels.when the marinade is ready, you can add nutmeg and sand kernel for 4-5 minutes, because the smell will evaporate when the time is too long.if you want to make enema, grind it directly and add 0 to chicken meat enema.02%, 0.1%, pork enema add 0.05%, 0.1%, other meat products add 0.14%, 0.1 per cent(compared to raw materials).
