Our packs of Cure No.1 and Cure No.2 are professional cures aimed at experienced users and require accurate digital scales to measure out precise quantities and also require additional PVD or Coarse Sea Salt to mix and dilute.
Our Cure No.1 can be used to follow recipes that call for Cure 1, or Prague Powder No.1, or Insta Cure No.1.
Cure 1 is for curing any type of meat that will go on to be cooked, such as bacon, or English style Hams. It contains 93.75% salt and 6.25% sodium nitrite.
Always follow a trusted curing recipe when using these cures as they contain higher percentages of Nitrite than our regular cures (i.e Supracure or Laycocks Dry Cure Or our Quick Brining cures which are all pre-blended under licence).
Always store in sealed and well marked containers.
