Misty Gully Curing Salts
Australia’s #1 brand for curing salts, Misty Gully’s premium range offers products you can trust to will deliver the best possible results to both professional and home chefs alike. We have three specific curing salts, perfect for any project.
Cure #1 6.25% – Our cure #1 6.25% is 6.25% nitrite, 93.25% salt, died pink for safety reasons. Made in Australia, it is designed for curing process between 3 and 10 days. Ideal for making bacon, ham and a range of sausage and other small goods.
Cure #1 2% – We also offer a unique variant on the traditional cure #1, with just 2% nitrites. Our exclusive blend is perfect for a short curing duration, particularly useful for making jerky and semi-dried sausages.
Cure #2 – Our cure #2 contains 6% nitrites and 4% nitrates, designed for longer curing processes, 10-28 days. Over time, nitrates will break down and essentially become nitrites, thus extending the safe curing process for products such as prosciutto, salami and capicola.
These products are often referred to as pink salt, Prague powder or salt peter. The use of curing salts is essential in the safe production of home made and commercially made small goods, preventing life threatening illnesses such as botulism and listeria.
