Cincinnati, Ohio (PRWEB) September 12, 2008
Just Cured, LLC announced today that its initial line of cold smoked and cured salmon is available for purchase through retailers in the Greater Cincinnati, Ohio area and through the Just Cured online store at http://www.justcured.com. Just Cured's products consist of a European Style Smoked Salmon, a Half Smoked Salmon and Dill Cured Gravlax.
Just Cured produces its smoked and cured salmon using only traditional techniques and hand processes. The salmon comes from Scotland and is raised using sustainable aquaculture techniques. Just Cured then lightly cures and smokes the fish, resulting in smoked and cured salmon that tastes first of fresh salmon and has the texture of fresh salmon. The smoke and cure supplement the flavor of the fish rather than overpower it. All of Just Cured's salmon is hand sliced and delivered fresh, never having been frozen.
Just Cured Smoked Salmon is dry cured in salt and a touch of Woodford Reserve® Kentucky Bourbon and smoked over natural oak smoke. The smoked salmon is available in 8 ounce and 16 ounce sliced packages and as an unsliced loin of approximately 1-3/4 pounds. Whole sides are available by special order.
The Half Smoked Salmon is meant to be served as a main course. It is cured and very quickly smoked to provide a delicate smoke flavor. The half smoked salmon is available in packages of two filet portions of approximately 5 ounces each. Directions for further cooking appear on the package.
Just Cured Gravlax is dry cured with salt, sugar, fresh dill, pepper and armagnac. It is available in 8 ounce and 16 ounce sliced packages and as an unsliced loin of approximately 1-3/4 pounds. Whole sides are available by special order.
Retail prices for the sliced salmon products are approximately $35 per pound.
About Just Cured. Just Cured, founded in early 2008, is a producer of premium smoked and cured foods. Its initial products are all salmon based. Just Cured operates from a modern, dedicated production facility located in a mid-19th century building in the Over the Rhine neighborhood of Cincinnati, Ohio. Just Cured's neighbors include the historic Findlay Market and many specialty producers and sellers of food products.
About Michael Brown. Michael Brown is the principal of Just Cured. Prior to founding Just Cured, Michael was a practicing attorney for 27 years concentrating in corporate merger and acquisition transactions. In early 2008, Michael left the large firm practice of law to engage in artisanal food production through Just Cured. When asked about the transition from large transaction lawyer to solo entrepreneur, Michael responded: "The practice of law is intellectually stimulating but not particularly emotionally rewarding. With Just Cured, I can touch the most important part of our customers' lives -- the time they spend at table with family and friends. When we deliver a product using the very best ingredients we can obtain and made with all our care and attention, we enhance that occasion and become a part of it. That is very rewarding."
