Usage for 5 lb recipe: After mixing in Salt and #2 Curing Salt, add the contents of the package to the sausage meat mix. Toss together thoroughly. Knead in dissolved Starter Culture and dextrose.

This blend does not contain: Salt, #2 Curing Salt, or Starter Culture for creating a robust culture all of which are necessary for making traditional fermented slow dried sausage. 

Instructions

1. Weigh ingredients: 3% kosher salt and 0.25% #2 Curing Salt -OR- use Premixed Curing Salts Blend. NOTE: Dry fermented sausage is best with 20% fat, pork back fat being optimal for appearance of final product.
