    The product was delivered on time and in perfect condition. My husband was delighted with my first attempt at corned beef, which is hard to get where we live. I was amazed at how well it turned out. I will definitely do this again.

    Good product. Good price. SLOW SHIPPING. I live 20 miles from the store and it took 8 days for my package to get to me. For the shipping cost I could have just picked it up and had it the same day.

    Yes, all meat should be refrigerated. Instacure #2 is only used if you are drying your chicken burgers into salami

    Q If the original packaging is unopened, what is the shelf life of Insecure #1 answer now

    Hi Bryan,

    All of our cure and seasonings have a year shelf life but will last a long time after that. Especially if it's un-opened it could last years! Let us know if you need anything else.

    Take care,
