Morton''s tender quick in canada
« on: January 27, 2018, 10:22:22 am »
If anybody from Canada, Alberta specifically  is looking for tender quick, I found it in the local co-op
I'm not sure if there are co-op's all across Canada but they have it.

Been looking for along time.

Just an FYI
Corey :D

WOW, thank you CoreyMac. I do purchase most of my supplies from Western Compound here but never looked for Mortons Tender Quick there. Its a large wholesaler that deals mostly with businesses and not individuals like myself, but they do carry everything if you know what to ask for. Once again Thank You.

You can save money by making the Basic Cure mix. There is some question about how much sugar there is in Morton Tender quick, as compared to the Basic Cure mix. Though it has .5% sodium nitrite, and .5% sodium nitrate. The Basic Cure mix has 1% sodium nitrite.

Basic Dry Cure:
1 pound/450 grams pickling salt (this is purified table salt)
8 ounces/225 grams granulated sugar
2.4 ounces/68 grams pink salt (InstaCure #1; or DQ Powder; or Prague Powder #1; or Cure #1; or TCM)
Makes about 3 1/2 cups

So you can make any amount you like. Kept in an air tight container, it will last for a long time. The actual formula is:
2 parts salt + 1 part sugar x 20% = Amount of Cure #1 to add


     I
         don't
                   inhale.
