Get a pan. Drill holes in bottom.

 

Use ice cream salt ( non iodized). Put layer of salt bottom of pan, put a layer of smelt down, layer salt, smelt, salt etc. obviously put a pan underneath for drainage.

 

let cure for at least 12 hours. I do a bit longer. Cover so flies can’t get in. Rinse very quickly get salt off ( don’t get too wet). Put on paper towels to dry off.  Put in zip locks then into freezer. 

 

 

Here err is a wet brine if want to add dyes, scents
