Curing chump joint

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Curing a chump joint immersed in salt. Got to be cured for 9 days (3 days per kilo). Can I use the salt again? If I dried it out... just thinking really.

No, discard it. It's drawing moisture out of the meat and into the salt, along with any bacteria etc on the surface.

I didn't factor bacteria into it as salt makes it inhospitable for breeding but better safe than sorry.
