Salt Herring Curing

500 herring fish (struck or do yourself)
1 gal. brine
1 qt. Puerto Rico molasses
1/4 lb. black pepper
1/4 lb. salt Petre

To make brine mix salt and water thoroughly until it will float a potato through which a nail has been stuck. Make enough to cover fish. The herring must go through a process called "striking".
