Charcuterie: How-to make it at home

Spice it, salt it, slice and eat. Repeat. That's charcuterie.

Think you can make your own bacon at home? With BetsyLife's recipe, you can - and with some curing salt it is quite easy too. From corned beef to salmon, these recipes will walk you through the basics of curing meats and fish.
