Dry Cure Bacon - 7 Days on

To make your own bacon see my Dry Cured Bacon - Tutorial.

I wrote about dry curing bacon on 29 November. I had started curing the bacon a couple of days previously, so it has now beeen curing for 7 days. The bacon has been washed in cold water and dried with a paper towel:

I have hung it in the wine fridge I use for curing: I'll dry it for a couple of days. This gives time for the cure in the meat to even itself out so it is spread equally throughout the meat:
