• Just a heads up for those of you who use Tapatalk to access NCH&F. I will be removing support for that app effective immediately. The reasons are many, but the primary one is that it allows spammers to post here without first being authorized to do so. This, coupled with their increasingly aggressive and invasive ads and pop ups, has caused us to remove them from the site entirely.

Who dabbles?

I’ve got some whole muscle stuff in the works, and I’ve got several pounds of dried sausages about ready.

First one out was a fancy salami and it’s yummy. 70/30 venison/pork fat. It could honestly use a another 5-10% fat imo.E68E9599-8403-4DF7-934E-F37C59889776.jpeg6BF5C163-29E6-47B0-A78E-B3571BF9088E.jpegC4F6BF3B-7230-4148-83E1-372717E0B524.jpegI’m using the umai bags for now, but a curing cabinet is in the works.

Man.... that both looks good and impressive. I’ve dabbled with making bresaola and always wanted to give prosciutto making a try. Just haven’t found the time just yet. Wife got me a LEM mighty bite stuffer for Christmas though so sausage/salami making is on the agenda!

Grandad, god rest his soul, was straight off the boat from Italy. He was an absolute snob when it came to salami. I think he would’ve been happy to have your creation on his table. Nicely done bud

I dabble. Got a coppa that been 13 days in EQ cure. Need to case it and put it to bed tonight. Deer whole muscle works really well as a breasola. I do like to add a little cold smoke prior to aging, which isn't normally done, but it works.
