**********UPDATE*********** Since making this video, I've modified my process a little resulting in a less salty end product. Instead of re-salting the bacon every day, I only add more salt every 4th or 5th day (which may mean only twice during the cure). I'm also using maple sugar which helps cut the saltiness. ************ By viewer request, I made this video to show how I cure bacon without using any ingredients except pork belly and salt. I learned this skill from reading Farmstead Meatsmith's "The Butcher's Salt" Bacon precept 2 years ago. pork belly roast: https://youtu.be/T_n6lLzA2EQ #bacon
