    I am using the sun to cure liver with garlic and salt.First I drained the liver by putting it on a tilted table in the sun for an hour or so then put in canister with salt and garlic and shook up until it was well coated then laid it on table in sun to dry.It obviously wasn't dry dry enough so put it back with the salt and garlic and it has been drying in the sun all day.How do I tell when it has cured-dried enough?Does this need to be kept in the refrigerator?
