FAQ: Why are there bubbling/fizzing effect when Helen mixed salt and vinegar together, but it did not happen with mine?
Answer: The salt Helen used accidentally has baking soda (NaHCO3) in it (This was apparently added by the manufacturer to avoid clumping). It reacts with acid acetic in the vinegar and releases CO2 which causes bubbling effect. However this does not affect the roast pork. Even if your mix does not bubble, the recipe still works with most salt & vinegar.
