bacon worries!

lestblight | May 22, 2012 11:43 AM

Have some bacon curing on its 7th day about an inch thick maybe a little more.

Its not firming up too much yet and i used the ruhlman recipe for 5 pounds and split the cure for each peice and put in seperate bags.

Feels a little squishy still.. should i leave it longer?

I used pink salt from the spicehouse online.. perhaps my cure didnt work?

anyway to fix this?
