Stop cooking with watery, shop-bought bacon and try curing your own proper dry-cured bacon at home with this award-winning kit!

This Eco-friendly curing kit is a great beginners kit for anyone looking to learn how to cure their own proper dry-cured bacon.  The kit uses traditional artisan methods of drawing the moisture out of the meat, which stops the watery texture that you usually get with shop bought bacon. 

Includes three different curing mixes – just add the pork.

Kit includes:  3 x curing mixes – original (15g), sweet (25g) and smoky (20g); 1 x muslin; 1 x butcher’s hook; instruction’s booklet; gloves; sealable bags
