InstaCure #1 1lb.

Insta Cure™ No. 1 is a basic cure for use with all meats that require cooking, brining, smoking or canning. This includes poultry, fish, ham, bacon, luncheon meats, corned beef, pâtés and other products too numerous to mention. Formerly known as Prague Powder No. 1, the Sausage Maker’s USDA-approved cure formula is a simple 1lb. sodium nitrite cure containing salt, 6.25% sodium nitrite and an anti-caking agent.

Curing meat prevents botulism poisoning (common food poisoning). This process also helps to safely and effectively preserve the meat while imparting more robust flavors and colors. The Sausage Maker recommends using one level teaspoon per five pounds of ground meat. One pound Insta Cure 1 will process approximately 480 pounds of meat.

For a basic bacon or ham brine (not including additional flavor ingredients), mix:

  • 1 gal. water
  • 4 oz. (½ cup) Insta Cure #1
  • 1 lb. 5 oz. (1¾ cup) salt
  • 1½ oz. (2¼ Tbsp.) sugar

Packaged item dimensions: 8" L, 7" W, 1" H

Unit weight: 1 lb.

Reviewer: Anonymous Person  
I've been buying products and equipment from the Sausage Maker for 20 years.  Never had a bad product.  Never had to return anything.  Everything has been as advertised.  You can't get better than that!

Reviewer: Danny Gonzalez from Fontana, CA United States  
This was my first time brining and smoking a fresh ham and it turned out GREAT! I will be ordering more very soon and I think my store bought cure and precooked ham days are over, I will be making it this way from now on. GREAT PRODUCT!

Insta Cure #1, 1 lb December 16, 2016
Reviewer: Halina Kowalczyk from New Freedom, PA United States  
This is a must if you are smoking your meats, fish or poultry.  I could not live without it.  The Sausage Maker is the best place to get it.  Definitely recommend to anyone who is thinking of making and smoking their own sausage.
