Just lost a side of bacon due to slime

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hi all, I must have got some bugs in my bacon as I just opened the Tupperware up after two weeks in pops brine and was greeted by a nasty smell and gelatinous brine.

I followed the recipe to the T and the belly was bought at a reputable dealer. It looked good and smelled good prior to its bath. Didnt have any issues with my refrigerator that I can tell.

 

 

Im scratching my head as to what else may have gone wrong?

 

Good thing is Ill get to stuff my Linguica today instead of tomorrow!

Ropey, there is a good explaination in here somewhere.

Now if it stinks I would pitch it. From what I have heard thats a bad indicator.

 

The Ropey can just be washed off, I have had it before and the bacon was fine.
