Trespade sausage stuffer

I am thinking about selling my sausage stuffer. I believe its a 10 liter unit. Excellent unit with two speed gear system. I am thinking $ 400.00 is a very good price. Send me a pm if you are interested. I live in Victoria.

I had one sausage spice supplier tell me that the key to success on Ayshire bacon is to tumble both the loin and bacon to activate the Myocin which acts as binder when you roll the two together.

Lonza

Thanks Redzed and Bob K: I enjoyed working on this. I made a Capicolla earlier this year and it turned out nicely so I thought I would give the Lonza a try. I will vacuum seal it today and let it rest for a month and try eating it. The next step is to progress to a proper curing and fermentation cha...

mt first Lonza

Hello to All: I just completed my first Lonza and have recorded a 35 % weightloss. In reading your posts, I see where is is worth letting it continue to age for 4 or 5 more months. I am willing to do this for a better end product, so I understand that I should vacuum seal it so that it does not dry ...

members recipe index

I noticed that there is a number of bad links( pardon the pun) on the members recipe page. Perhaps someone can go through them and edit out the bad ones.

mapeline ?

I saw that recipe in the members recipe index but wasn't sure about it. Why use mapeline
( imitation maple flavoring) as well as real maple syrup. And why poach the links in 180 degree water before freezing?
Any thoughts?

hearty spice blend

Hi Redzed: Many thanks for posting those pages for me. I see reference to a hearty spice blend on page 42. Do you have that page? Also curious about the amount of cure called for. Either 15 gms of saltpeter or 90 gms of curing salt. If using cure # 1, how much do you suggest?
