Homemade Dry Cured Salumi Sat, 01/18/14 9:25 PM (permalink)
We have a lot of trim meat from the pigs we processed a few months ago. I thought making dry cured Salumi would be a nice way of using up the pork. This is the process so far..........
 
Gnd pork
 


 
gnd pork with salt,black pepper,red pepper flakes,chili powder, garlic powder, instacure #2,starter culture, powdered dextrose. this mixture was worked into 4.4 pounds of gnd pork.
 

 
I made three different thinknesses or sizes...
 

 
these will hang for a few days,then set for a few weeks in the refer..............if my wife shows people our house, she tells them this is my husbands walk in closet, his shoes, his suits, his hanging salumi.......

      Thanks, Bill. I'm sure they will be delicious. Are you keeping one for yourself or are they all for me?

                leethebard: I'll take a picture on Tuesday after 72 hrs of hanging. The fermentation process should have started, we should see color change. It will then go on a wire rack in the refer for a few weeks or until it loses 30% of it's weight.
                 
                 Thxs Michael, Felix,Joe..........
                 
                Ed, I'll bring one down in June, we can taste it with a nice Napa Cab.
                 
                Ann, I don't need your address, I'll just look for a starving truck driver and figure it's Bob. I'll send it with him..........GO HAWKS

                        Pardon my ignorance, but can Salumi or similar products cure properly in a plastic bag?
                        I thought they needed to have exposure to temp, air & humidity controls in order to "Mold" properly.
                        Do you think this book is worth buying?

                                Thanx! for the info. I see that the bag "Breathes" for lack of a better term. What does UMAi stand for?

                                          Thank you!  But that dry-cured salumi sure does look good.  I used to make it in France, I hung it in my wine cellar to dry and age.

                                            And did you sit there sipping your wine watching it age?

                                              Nope, I took the wine upstairs and enjoyed it in a proper glass!

                                                            I truly envy you. After shelling out big bucks for a sausage stuffer at Cabella's all three of my attempts at making sausage were a disaster. They sell a brand of cured salumi here at Whole Paycheck and it's pretty good. Just wish I had the talent.
