I am wondering if anyone has ever done any bacon without nitrates / nitrites in it. Seems like a shame to make homemade bacon and add chemicals. I know its been done that way forever, but if I can avoid the chemicals, then I would like to try it. Every bacon recipe i have seen on here uses pink salt or cure. My brother is allergic to nitrates and nitrites, and I am sure he would love me to figure out how to do it without it.
Any advice would be appreciated!
