Dry-Salting Meat for Preservation


Preserve Meat (Curing) Meat By Dry Salting Or With A Salt Brine

Image Using salt for preserving (curing) meat has been a big part of food preservation seemingly forever and the technique is still used today. Dry salting or using a salt brine would be one way to preserve meat while living in an environment without electricity.

The cell loses water until it reaches a state where it cannot grow and then cannot survive any longer. --- CONTINUED at LINK, above ---
