A big fat happy birthday to you too, Jan. And thank you for all the German goodies you have tempted me to make lately.
The last was sauerkraut and spaetzle, tonight it's sauerbraten.
Have yourself a wonderful day with your family, and drink a toast to good times!
Best wishes Ursula

They are vacsealed and have been shared with enthusiastic family and friends. I'll post a photo when I get time Not doing any curing till this lo...

Hi Croc,
My attitude to these ridiculous rules is that it is only illegal if you get caught. I take no notice of nanny state rules. They are made to be ignored. Go for it!

The thread title gave me a bit of a shock, and I thought that duck was up to mischief again. Having read through all the information and the comments of others I got the impression of outrage, shock, disbelief and anger at the news, yet to be confirmed, that this rumour might be true. Above all, the...

Thank you for all the answers. I'll wipe off the very little mould that has formed, and try it with the casings on.

Hi All, After my first disasters with salamis, I just did a taste test on the 6 different ones I made a few weeks ago. They are all delicious - out of the stratosphere compared to those you can buy. And no case hardening on any of them. I dried them in the bathroom where the winter kept the humidity...

My ten salamis are now pretty much ready for a taste test, and then I'll have to vacseal them and stick them in the fridge. A question for the more experienced: Should the fibrous casings be removed before vacsealing? I seem to remember someone commenting that they can get slimy. ?? Also will vacsea...

Happy birthday to you too, Grasshopper from DownUnder. ^0's a pretty big milestone. How did you celebrate it? It draws ever closer to me too. I celebrated my 40th for a whole week, so the 60th deserves a good bit of attention. Hope it was a great one for you! And Jim, pardon my ignorance re your loc...
