Curing bacon: Day 6

Previous post: Curing bacon: Day 5

At this state, the pork had been sitting in the "Honey-Glo" cure liquid for two days, having been turned over after the first day.

I poured the liquid down the drain, to get it ready to be given another coating of the salt/sugar rubbing mix. The meat definitely looks a more palatable red colour after soaking in the liquid.
