storing lonzino

Post by cathouse willy » Mon Dec 04, 2017 04:52

I just pulled 7 lbs of orange lonzino meant for Christmas gifts. I left the casing and the netting on and vacuum packed them.Now I'm wondering if I should have removed the wrappings before I vac pac'd them. What's the group wisdom say on this?
Thanks
Bill

Bill-
You want to remove the casing. Especially if there was mold. Mold will die without O² and will get slimey.

Bob,thanks for the reply, I had this nagging feeling about leaving them in the cases so I'm glad I asked.I wasted a few vacuum bags but better that than slimy meat.I removed the casings, wiped them down with vinegar and re bagged them.
