1oldfart Don’t worry about that. Part of that could be how much water (if any) the belly was pumped with before you got it.
Sure cure clumping
Has any one had their sure cure clump up when they add it to water? Will this effect my sausage?
erich52 I’ve never seen that happen before but I suppose it is possible. How clumpy are we talking about? As long as it was thoroughly mixed in with the meat I would imagine not as the clumps would break down. Now, if you are saying it created two big lumps and was never distributed through the meat then yes, it might prevent the nitrite from being evenly distributed through the sausage.
