Resurrecting the 'All purpose curing salt' thing!

Postby ped » Sun Jan 17, 2016 6:11 pm

Am I right in thinking that this product is a mix of cure #2 and salt or does it have different %'s of nitrite/nitrate to cure#2 ?

Unfortunately, the simple answer is: we just don't know.

That said, Franco the owner of Sausage Making is an experienced curer and sausage-maker and says to replace the salt and cure with the All Purpose Curing Salt, so we assume that the level of nitrite/nitrate is around 0.5% for each to give levels within the EU rules.

From anywhere else I'd be dubious, but I know that Franco knows his stuff.

Sorry not to be of more help.
