The traditional dry curing process has remained basically the same since the 1200s. Salts and nitrates help to remove moisture from the meat, resulting in a preserved meat product that’s lighter in weight and safe to eat for much longer than fresh meat. During the process of dehydration, the humidity and temperature inside the meat’s environment must be carefully controlled to avoid contamination, spoilage and unpleasant flavors.
