Bacon left longer than it should?

Postby kimgary » Mon Aug 08, 2016 12:30 pm

Hi I did a wheels cure on a loin of Pork, with one thing and another it was left 10 days before being washed off, I only intended to leave it 48 hours in the fridge to mature but due to circumstances its been in there semi covered for 10 days, it looks ok accept for one small area about a penny in size with a green tinge, I think it is a little nitrite burn, what to do?, slice and keep or throw away?, if I do keep it any idea on shelf life in vac packs?
Kind Regards
Gary.

I'd slice it and cook and try a bit. I can't see any reason why it won't be superb.
