First Time Home Curing Ham

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

So I'm looking into curing my own ham for Christmas dinner this year. I've done a good bit of homework and have the basics down. One of my major questions is this: are there any substances I might add to the curing brine that might not react well with the Insta-Cure? I'm really wanting to add Dr. Pepper but wanted to ask about doing so.

Brandon, here is a great thread on curing a whole ham.

Scroll through the whole thread to see the whole process. I don't know the the answer to to your Dr. Pepper question. Maybe someone else will.

Thanks Wood.

 

I decided to skip a step and go straight to Pops for the answer. According to him, there should be no negative reaction between the Dr. Pepper and the nitrite.
