Curing Bacon with Grass-fed Homestead

Curing Bacon with Grass-fed Homestead

Is it really safe to cure bacon and hang it in your kitchen?  We turned to Dan at The Grass-fed Homestead, who has made meatsmithing and charcuterie his passion and he guided us through the process and answered all our questions.  Sometimes having someone walk you through the process is the best way to learn a new skill!
