Pink Salt/Sodium Nitrite/Sodium Nitrate/Sel-Rose?
Is anyone out there familiar with curing salts?
I am looking for "pink salt" to cure some meats. My understanding is that this has 6.25% sodium nitrite. I found a store carrying Sel-Rose, although I can't figure out if it is sodium nitrite or sodium nitrate. Does anyone have experiences with or knowledge about Sel-Rose, and can give some guidance?
