KITLIVING

trend for these DIY cooking processes

now. As a chef, I'm a big fan of anything

that gets people into their kitchens, and

these kits are definitely doing that. It's a

great way to support your local butchers

and fishmongers as well."

The first in their range, The Homemade

Curing Kit... Bacon, was launched in

October 2014 and has since received

national media coverage and international

attention. They subsequently added a

spicy bacon kit, which introduced some

more unusual cures taking influences

from flavours like gin, classic pork

charcuterie for truly different bacon for

the adventurous home-based foodie. The

most recent addition to the range is the

for salmon and where they collaborated

with fellow award winning local Cotswolds

producer The Cotswolds Distillery to bring

a gin cure, along with a beetroot and a

smoky cure, for classic flavours of cured

salmon. All three cures take just three

days to create great-tasting salmon.

NOTE: Cured meats, especially those

that are smoked, are considered by the

WHO to be carcinogenic, also be wary of

the effect on your blood sugar with cures

that use sugar. Keep these products as

treats. Have small amounts infrequently.

Curing Kit... Bacon contains everything

you need to create great tasting

original, sweet and smoky bacon in

your own home. All you need to do

is add the pork! RIGHT Traditional

Scottish smokers, Smoky Brae, has

introduced an innovative Smoked

Gravlax Cure made using sea salt

and demerara sugar which has been

traditionally cold smoked low and slow

using a secret blend of hardwoods.

Sugar also contributes to the growth

of beneficial bacteria by feeding them.

Smoke: Smoking meat means exposing

it to smoke from burning or smoldering

plant materials, usually wood. Smoking

helps seal the outer layer of the food

being cured, making it more difficult for

bacteria to enter. If the smoke is hot

enough to slow-cook the meat, it will also

keep it tender. One method of smoking

calls for a smokehouse with damp wood

chips or sawdust. Woods used include

such as hickory, maple, apple and cherry.

Salt: Table salt is the primary ingredient

used in meat curing. Removal of water

and addition of salt to meat creates an

environment where osmosis can draw

water out. It also slows the oxidation

process, effectively preventing the meat

from going rancid. Sugar: The sugar

added to meat for the purpose of curing

it comes in many forms, including honey,

corn or maple syrup. However, with the

exception of bacon, it does not contribute

much to the flavour but alleviate the

harsh flavour of the salt used in curing.

Nitrates and nitrite: These not only

help kill bacteria, but also produce a

characteristic flavour and give meat a pink

or red colour Nitrite is generally supplied by

sodium nitrate or (indirectly) by potassium

nitrate. Nitrite salts are most often used

in curing. Nitrate is specifically used only

in a few curing conditions and products

where nitrite (which may be generated

from nitrate) must be generated in the

product over long periods of time.
