Meat Curing with Karen Solomon - Sept 23, 2018
Free Gift

$ 150.00

Learn to make beef jerky, succulent bacon and cured gravlax with the preservation master Karen Solomon, author of Cured Meat, Smoked Fish, & Pickled Eggs! More details to come but this is a one-time class so get your tickets while you can!

Between making beef jerky and curing gravlax, Karen will demonstrate how to prepare, cure, smoke, slice, and preserve your own outstanding homemade bacon. Hands down, it's everyone's favorite meat. Even those who eschew the pig find it hard to resist the intoxicating smoke and rich flavor of crisp, delicious bacon. Why stay beholden to the store-bought stuff in the plastic package? Homemade bacon is far easier to make than you think - with or without access to special equipment like a smoker or a barbecue grill. 

You don't need any special equipment at home (we'll teach you how to get around it).
