First Time Home Curing Ham

  1. So I'm looking into curing my own ham for Christmas dinner this year. I've done a good bit of homework and have the basics down. One of my major questions is this: are there any substances I might add to the curing brine that might not react well with the Insta-Cure? I'm really wanting to add Dr. Pepper but wanted to ask about doing so.

  3. Thanks Wood.

    I decided to skip a step and go straight to Pops for the answer. According to him, there should be no negative reaction between the Dr. Pepper and the nitrite.
