Morton Tender Quick Meat Cure

Tender Quick contains salt, sugar, an anti-caking agent, and one-half percent each of sodium nitrite and sodium nitrate. Morton’s recommended formula for dry cures is one tablespoon of Tender Quick for every pound of meat. For a wet brine, add one cup of Tender Quick to four cups of water. Use for cured and smoked meat, poultry, game, and fish.
