Ingredients

How to make it

  • In GLASS JAR* combine SALTPETER, SALT, SUGAR and WARM WATER.
  • Stir until all three are dissolved in the water.
  • Add PICKLING SPICES, PAPRIKA, CHILE POWDER, GARLIC and ONION.
  • Add MEAT giving it a turn or two to coat all sides.
  • Then add enough COLD WATER to completely submerge the meat.
  • [If needed, put a heavy dish on top, to push meat down into the brine.]
  • Refrigerate for three to four weeks turning the meat (therefore stirring the spices), once or twice per week.
  • [This is why I like the pickle jar. You can just shake it up and even turn it over. Easy.]
  • Cook according to your favorite recipe.
  • ~~~~~~~~~~
  • Tip: Saltpeter, a.k.a. Potassium Nitrate. A naturally occurring mineral source of Nitrogen.
  • . [I find this in the pharmacy.]

    Hey, I love this recipe. My boys always bring home their deer so this is one more great thing I can do with it. High five to you.

    We love venison but, I never would have thought to Irish up my deer meat! Gonna try this for Patty's Day, just have to hide the venison in back of the freezer.

    I can't believe I'm seeing this, breezy! You know, it never entered my mind that you could "home-corn". I will have to try this. You have my hubby's five AND mine! Thanks so much for this post!
