    terry Yup, you will be fine letting it sit in the fridge for a bit. With the imitation bacon generally you are going to use a pan or a sheet or something to put the meat in so protein extraction isn’t as important as when you are making a cured sausage that is going to be put into a casing.

    Thanks for the reply

  • If you allow a salted blend to sit in the refrigerator, it will continue extracting protein through 72 hrs and get stiffer even without ore mechanical mixing. Even 6 hrs in the refrigerator you should be able to tell a difference.
