These nre (1) chill fresh carcasses promptly, (2) weigh meat and curing Ingredients carefully, (3) keep meal cold while in cure, nnd (i) figure curlnr time carefully. The agent outlined the four points i successful meat curing as follows: 1. The temperature of a hog Is approximately 105 degrees Pnlircn- telt when It Is removed from the raiding viit, and genus multiply rapidly at temperatures above 40 •Isgrccs. Therefore, the animal should be dressed quickly and cooled rapidly. To do this, saw down Ihc •uilmal's back, remove the leaf fat, .hen chill at temperatures below 40 but, alx>ve 32 degrees Fahrenheit. 2. The following Ingredients :hfluld be mixed for eaclr 100 pounds jf meat: 8 pounds.of salt, 2 pounds of white or brown sugar,. and a 3UHCCS of saltpetre; Mix well theij divide into'two equal portions. Rub one portion carefully over'all.sur- faces and around the bones, arid <cep the remaining portion to place: on the meal; 6 to 8 clays later, Puf ibout ',4-Inch layer of cure bri tht- can face of the hams and shoulders; -nly "frost" the thin bacon strip'/ 'lace the curing meat on a table'; ihelf. or in ,1 box away from dirt ind flics. .3.-: The Ideal/ meat curing tem- icrature is .38. decrees Fahrenheit 1 - owcr temperatures retard salt penetration. Farmers may cure' meat on their farms nt temperature's tibove •io degrees; however, this Is a risk because such n large amount of salt may be vised which results in dry and salty cured"products. 4. Too few days In cure may cause spoilage, while a long cure in heavy salt results in hard, dry, unpalatable meat. Consequently, curing lime.'must b'a carefully figured, i Best -results are obtained If curing time Is governed as follows: Allow 1U- days curing time for.each pound of bacon, and 2 days per pound of mum lime ot 25 days even though the ham weighs only 10 pounds, This "allows time for the cure to pene- Irate the bone cells and the mni-- row of the bone Pick Playthings That Will Help Children Learn With Clnlslmns just around the corner, Ibis bii.'-lnc.s.s' of buying toys lor young children Is one of paramount Important to MlEslsslppt county parents, because the- play ol ' an educational , equipment he us'tv. is n means (hrough wlilcli he leasns, advlicd Cora Lee Colcman, ccunl.v home' deniomtraUoii agent,' "A chim^mny (ciln kna'.vleclge i Ills play experiences which llvo-al-lionic iii-ograin for next .'.ear.
