Re: Canned meat by StefanS

Stefan, those looks impressive! I wanted to start canning long time ago but couldn't decide for sure... because was (and still) afraid that my wife kick me out of the house for so many hobbies I have :) sausage making, meats smoking, bread baking, etc.... I think it's time to start... and I have a c...

Re: First Liverwurst

Nice looking liverwurst! I have a question though... I have noticed a few air pockets on this sausage. I have the same when I make bologna or hot dogs and I do meat emulsification using my food processor. If I just grind meat through 3 mm plate twice (after grinding through 5 mm before) - I don't ha...

I heard of this juicer and was going to buy it... Still want to buy but my wife is vetoed this attempt - at least for now: her argument is "you already have too many toys for your hobby". Really? It's never too many toys! :-) This juicer is pretty expensive if you buy it new (around $350 or so) but ...

Butterbean and redzed - thank you very much for your comments! Like I said before, I don't think that the buttermilk powder had real impact on tangy taste. The tangy taste was not really noticeable. About sausage being a little more moist: honestly, I don't know. This was my first experiment with dr...

OK... Finished my SS last Friday. Not exactly summer sausage taste but... absolutely delicious. Sausage does not have too much of tang taste (almost nothing) but taste is great. It's not exactly firm (I like slightly more firm sausage) and I think I know why: very possible fat ratio was something be...

I use binders extremely rear: only for hot dogs and bologna. I decided to use dry buttermilk for SS only- to give it a little of tang taste. Just stuffed it in 65 mm collagen natural protein casing (did not have fibrous casing on hands), placed it in the smoker at 130F for an hour. Start smoking at ...

Exactly right- it is fine, chalky consistency. As soon as you have tried it before and it did not spoil your sausage - I'll try it..... Thank you for your respond!

Cultured Buttermilk for Summer sausage?

Happy New Year to everyone! I am going to make 6.5 kg of Summer sausage tomorrow. 50/50 pork shoulder and lean beef. I don't want to use FL-C culture this time and don't have fermento on hands so... I decided to use dry buttermilk. I could not find just "dry buttermilk" in neither of 5 supermarkets ...
