Cooking Directions:
The two most important ingredients are salt and sugar. Salt is the main ingredient, with the sugar added to offset some of the salt’s harshness, and to keep the pork belly moist and tender during the aging process. Boil Sea salt, brown sugar, saltpeter, apple cider, and water for 20 minutes, stir to dissolve the sugar. Add maple syrup and fresh ground pepper and refrigerated the liquid for 30 minutes. Once the liquid is cold add the Pork belly and Let it refrigerate for 5-7 days flipping and basting once or twice a day. Try not to penetrate the pork belly when flipping. Carve whatever you going to use off the pork belly and freeze the rest in a freeze safe bag. Pan fry or grill cook it.
