hide

Salting is the method of curing hides and skins from spoilage prior to carrying out the remainder steps of the tanning process. Salt-curing is widely known in the industry and applications can vary from dry-salting to immersing the hide in a brine solution. Cheetham strongly suggests that all hide salt is not for human or animal consumption, and it should be stored away from food.
