Hi Phil,

I certainly agree with you when it comes to salt and sugar. As for things which are very light and/or used in very small quantities, I think that using spoon measures is fine, especially for spices/herbs, where the worst that can happen is that your sausages or your cure is a bit over-spiced or under spiced. In the case of curing products, I think it's fine to use spoons as long as they are pre-calibrated and used consistently and meticulously.

Although one CAN perfectly well buy electronic scales accurate to 0.1g I find that with a tiny amount of mental effort, I can recalculate a cure mix to use exactly one british standard teaspoon (of the type I have) of - for example - saltpetre and therefore end up with a cure that is in exact proportions.

I'd no more use cups for measuring salt than I would for measuring beef or butter.

Hi, I'm trying to download the Excel file but it's not loading up for me. Is there another location or would it be possible for Excel formulae to be put on the forum please?

Thanks Ken
