Ham Press

"Ham Press" is continued from the forum "Products In Blocks" - Topic was split by CW 062913 @16:14Hrs.

Wow, that is a great looking ham press. Its too bad they're so hard to locate here in the U.S. That would be the ticket for making a loaf of lunch meat for the coming weeks sandwiches.

Gulyas, I agree that the cooking liquid would make for a great bean soup. My wife saves all different drippings and grease to use down the road for a pot of chili or some soup. But before I discard or freeze the cooking liquid,especially from cooking my hogs head, I'd sure want to put it into the fr...

Gulyas, those are some nice pictures of what I'm sure is an excellent product. I'm sure its the real deal. When I was at the meat market yesterday, it was early in the morning so I had the chance to pick the butchers brain. He said because here in Michigan they were not allowed to add blood to sausa...

Well another trip back to the Asian market netted me my tongues and a trip to the Spanish meat market netted the snouts. It appears I'm on my way to making some headcheese first next weekend. Then I'll give a try to the Kiszka the following weekend. For this long weekend I do have a couple of pork b...

Gulya's and IdaKraut, Just got back home from shopping. I stopped at one Oriental market and inquired about blood and the lady looked at me like I was nuts! Went down the road a piece to the next Asian market (Vietnamese) which also had a meat case. They indeed had blood. My choice was pork blood co...

Looks like a great recipe and product, thank you for sharing with us! I can offer this hint, I know it's hard to get a long sausage in a round pan when cooking it which results in having to go with short sausages. Do a Google search for"fish poaching pans". They are long and narrow and work great fo...

IdaKraut, Yes, I did see that recipe on the Poli website which is a great one for all sausage makers! In fact, I'm heading out today to my local Oriental Food stores to see if I can get some blood. Slaughter houses in my area are not allowed to sell blood by the bulk as it is a product that cannot b...

Pig tongues & snouts

I would like to make some Kiszka, Headcheese and Tongue blood sausage which all use tongues and snouts in their mix. My question is do the tongues and snouts have to be skinned after cooking and grinding? Thank you!
