Pinot Noir Curing Solution

Photo by by shutterbean
This was developed to cure venison, boar and game birds such as duck, goose, woodcock, quail and squab for charcuterie and garde manger preparations. items can spend a longer period in the light brine since the salt and sugar content is lower than a usual cure. Once cured they are usually poached or otherwise cooked very gently.
