First of all I have to tell you that some of my finest childhood memories are of my Dad making jerky with your mix on cold winter days. Sadly, many years ago the supplier he used to buy the mix from stopped carrying it. My Dad tried a couple of times to use different cures but none would equal yours. He never made jerky again. I decided to see if you were still around, somewhere out there. I did a search and was delighted to find you. Thank you so much! Roxanne November,2012. 
 
I've been using my own recipe for years, but this is so easy, and if I want to change it up from time to time, I just add another ingredient or two. This stuff is great.

What are the pink bags?

The pink bags are nitrate which speed up the curing process.
