    I had some buckboard bacon in the cure for 15 days now....does the brine change colour?

    Mine looks like an opaque kinda pinkish colour and is thicker than when it firs started out...no bad smell from the meat that I have noticed nor from the liquid brine itself...the meat was in a sealed container, weighed down and put in a spare fridge for the duration

    This was the first time for me using the recipe....any thoughts would be great

    Nevermind all, I googled and found the answer...its perfectly fine and acceptable for the brine to a ropie or stringy as they call it,actually normal in most cases
