The Only Way to Cure Pork. First, salt pork with plain salt by rubbing on and spreading out, say 12 hours, then apply to hams and shoulders as follows: Salt 10 lbs., brown sugar 2 lbs., salt petre 2 ounces, red pepper 1 ounce to 100 lbs. of pork; rub and apply freely. Sides resalt. If killing is done while weather is cool, say frosty, meat may not be stored for four to five days after butchering, but if warm it should be stored within 12 hours. Do not cut off chin bone, as this ruins the ham, and in storage they cure as well with chin left on. Time to be stored: Thirty days is sufficient. When taken from storage wash in warm water, wipe dry, sew up in canvas or homespun hang up and smoke every third da for two weeks. Use green hickory wood for smoking. Salt furnished at a reasonable price. Madison Electric Power Co. i , . notice. No hunting, fishing or other tres passing upon any of my lands.
