    I started making my own dog treats out of turkey breastfeeding last month. I'm not familiar with the curing tips to extend shelf life with being put in fridge. A few pieces started to mold some after a couple weeks, what are the best cures to use that are safe being mixed right into the meat before dehydration? All tips are appreciated

    I'm guessing they were stored in a sealed container of sorts...  Jar, plastic bag etc...   Stored in the open, in the refer, they may have made it..   The refer is a dehydrator and they would have continued to dry...   The freezer would be a good choice for container storage..   Vac-packed bags would work in the freezer..

    As far as a chemical treatment, like you find in the store, below are some suggestions....
