Salting food is a way to preserve it. To salt meat, one bag of salt is needed, along with meat. Salt is available from Driikilainen and Reemilainen villages, or from foreign traders. You need a pound of salt per ten pounds of meat. A bag of salt, which is 12 lbs, can thus preserve 120 cuts of meat. A bag of salt is very expensive, though (for example I bought one for 15x "Käpälälauta"-fox_traps ). The salting process takes 5 days.
