I know it's not the same as table salt, but I was wondering if if there is a substitute for curing salt in making sausage. Can you use kosher salt for that purpose? I would just love to make Pepin's sausage recipe!
Kosher salt is the same chemical compound as table salt, though it typically is not iodized. (iodine added). So no, it is not recommended for the purpose you mention. There is no substitute. Make a bad cured sausage and well, you'll know it.
