how can I dye salt with beets?
Basically I want to corn beef , i do not have saltpeter or Potassium nitrate I heard you could dye salt with beets and then use that to cure the beef and get the lovely pink color.
What do you think?
Should I boil the beets in my brine then brine the beef?
chop them up raw and place them in the salt? then use the salt in the brine?
