Use Morton Tender Quick for brine curing or both dry and sweet pickle curing. Or cure your own deli meats.
Morton Tender Quick can be used interchangeably with Morton Sugar Cure. For more uses, see our Morton Salt Home Meat Curing Guide.
Usage:After the meat is drained, make a Tender-Quick pumping pickle for pumping the large pieces. To make the pickle, use water that has previously been boiled and cooled, and mix Tender-Quick with the water, stirring until it dissolves. For curing meat that is to be kept for varying lengths of time the following ratio of water and Tender-Quick should be used: 2 1/2 lbs. of Tender-Quick to 3 quarts of water for meat that is to be carried over the summer or for meat that is to be kept 8 months to a year before being used. 2 1/2 lbs. of Tender-Quick per gallon of water for meat that is to be kept for only 3 to 6 months. 2 lbs. of Tender-Quick per gallon of water for meat that is to be used within 30 to 60 days. The Amount of Tender-Quick pumping pickle to use is 1 to 1 1/2 oz. of pickle per pound of meat. For ready reference the following scale shows the amounts of Tender-Quick for making a full strength pumping pickle which is to be used for curing meat that is kept 8 to 12 months: 2 1/2 lbs. of Tender-Quick to 3 quarts of water will make 96 oz. of pumping pickle. 5 lbs. of Tender-Quick to 1 1/2 gallons of water will make 192 oz. of pumping pickle. 10 lbs. of Tender-Quick to 3 gallons of water will make 384 oz. of pumping pickle. Pump I to 1 1/2 oz. of pickle per pound of meat.
Ingredients:Salt, Sugar, .5% Sodium Nitrate, .5% Sodium Nitrite, Propylene Glycol.

The only reason this product isn't getting 5 stars is the way it was packaged. I ordered this item with one other item and they were packaged together in a box with no padding whatsoever. When I opened the box half of the salt was out of the bag laying in the bottom of the box.

I needed some tender quick to cure some deer jerky. I went to 6 grocery stores a couple of times each over a 2 week time period they were out and said they can't get it. Great American Spice had it and sent it to me in less than 5 days. I appreciate your speedy shipping at regular shipping price. I will buy from you again!! Great price & shipping!!
Tender Quick is best for homemade beef stick
Posted by Pennie Martin on 27th Nov 2016
Order came quickly but we paid for two lb. bags but received only one. Called Morton and they quickly sent us the second bag. I use it every year at this time for making my homemade beef sticks. Delicious. Could not find it anywhere here in Pensacola, Florida so ordered it from you and are very pleased with the promptness. Thank you
