    6.25% sodium nitrite. The recipe I have is from France and they use a different curing product. So I just use a curing salt in quantities as recommended.

    Sodium 'Nitrate'
    or Sodium 'Nitrite'?

    Generally Sodium Nitrate is used in products that require long term curing like Dry Cured Hams, Bacons or Traditional Summer Sausages as the Nitrate will slowly break down to Sodium Nitrite and thus extend the curing process and protection against food poisoning .

    Where as Sodium Nitrite is used for products like your turkey rolls or my smoked sausages were it's only used for a short period of time.

    My Prague Powder #1 is 6.25% of Sodium Nitrite.

    Just wondering for clarification.

    Nitrite. The iPad thinks on its own. And I'm glad you caught that because that's one reason I didn't specify a quantity. I'm sure you know the difference but the next guy reading this may not.

    I thought it would be Nitrite and I was also thinking that while I knew the difference the next guy might not.

    Thanks for the clarification! Better safe than sorry!
