Morton® Tender Quick® mix can be used interchangeably with Morton® Sugar Cure® (Plain) mix. It is NOT a meat tenderizer.

It should not be used at higher levels as results will be inconsistent, cured meats will be too salty, and the finished products may be unsatisfactory.

Always keep meat refrigerated (36° to 40°F) while curing.
