Re: Smoked Liver Sausage and Cure #1

Re: Smoked Liver Sausage and Cure #1

<t>How are you going to adjust for the salt since the bacon will have already been salted? I ran into a problem some time back where a recipe called for bacon and in my mind bacon means cured meat but in some countries bacon is what we know as pork belly. I followed the recipe using bacon and ended ...

Re: # 32 Grinder Plates - 3mm (1/8")

What I have are the three slot Hobart style with the hub center. I don't think it would matter whether yours has a hub or flat as I think the hub is just for convenience when removing the plate. I have some custom plates which are hubless and they work fine in my grinder. Not sure whether or not the...

Re: # 32 Grinder Plates - 3mm (1/8")

Will the plates to your grinder interchangeable with Hobart? If so I have a good many Hobart plates in a box somewhere and I might could help you ought to keep you from having to buy one.

Re: Odd grinder

Thanks. I've never seen one like it and was curious. I'd think with meat it might work you pretty hard but can see where it might shine with pate's or vegies.

Re: Yeast Question for Winemakers

Thanks for the reply Ago. I'll stray on the side of caution and try and be patient and order some more. I have plenty of one type yeast to do this batch but its not what I wanted to use. With as much time as it takes to make libations such as this my waiting a few more days is a small price to pay b...

Was planning on making some sparkling hard cider next week and have some yeast ordered and it should arrive the first of the week.

Odd grinder

A friend picked up a bunch of old grinders and knowing I'm into that type stuff he gave me this one. I've never seen one like this before and only took it because it is unique in that it doesn't use a knife. Instead, the worm pushes the ingredients out to the plate and the plate turns and does the "...

Re: Drying fast fermented sausages?

Looks great. Glad they turned out well. Odd about your loss of taste. Any medical term for that phenomena? Just curious.
