pH test strips to measure range of pH 3 to 6?

The Master Food Preservers at your local Cooperative Extension Office could probably sell you a roll or "give" you a piece. There's one in Sacramento County - (916) 875-6913, and also one in El Dorado County.
I would imagine grocery chain stores would have some, especially meat departments. Or, try food products vendors or culinary schools.

Two cycles on 'dark' in my toaster-oven or a minute and a half per plate in the microwave worked for me. Of course, you may have to play with the duration as each one's toaster-oven or microwave is unique, and the quantity will also differ.
