Since our supply of bacon was getting low and the kids will be back for their semester break next month, I made a new batch of bacons. While putting the cure on the raw meat, I thought to myself that throwing away the cure after the bacon is cured is such a waste. I have many a times wanted to dump the liquid from the curing process of the bacon into the compost but I had to stop myself from doing so. I understand that salt is bad for plants and I have no memory of where I learn this from. So the salt content in the cure is what stop me from dumping it into the compost. So I just want to know whether it is OK to dump the solution into the compost heap and is plant affected by salted compost?
