NOT essential for FRESH sausage--in fact you should not use it for fresh that you will soon eat or freeze after preparation. Prague Powder #1 is ONLY required for sausage that will be smoked at low temperatures--and for brined meat and fish. And for these, Prague #1 is essential, although many have gotten by without using any of this. If you do, you risk being poisoned by bacteria.

There are many uninformed people responding with reviews about thousands of items, but in this case using this nitrite powder incorrectly can be injurious. Always follow the directions on the package for "dosages" appropriate to what you are going to prepare.

I used it to make some homemade bacon. This seemed to be by far the cheapest stuff (without buying in bulk). The bacon turned out well, everyone seemed to enjoy it.

This was a gift for someone who is interested in making their own corned beef. It is a good value for what it is.
