Step 1Make a brine with the water, cure, sugar and spices. Bring to the boil for 15 minutes and let cool down completely.
Step 2Transfer to a container and submerge the brisket in the brine. Cure for 7 to 10 days in the fridge, turning the brisket daily.
Step 3Remove the brisket and discard the brine. Cook the brisket in boiling water for 4 to 5 hours until soft. No need for extra seasoning. Let the brisket cool down in the water overnight.
Step 4Remove the brisket, cut into portions and wrap in cling film.
Step 5Heat through thoroughly in the microwave and serve on a bagel with Country Range Mustard and Country Range Cocktail Gherkins on the side.
