Coppa is ready

Post by Devo » Mon Aug 27, 2012 22:27

The long wait is over. It has lost the 30% weight I was waiting for.

We started out looking like this. All cured (#2) and seasoned.
Image

Added some more hot spice
Image
Image

Got it all tucked away in its new home
Image

Made sure it was not going anywhere by adding the netting
Image

Got the start weight
Image

Into the curing chamber it went with a bunch of his buddies.
Image

So from June 16th the wait was on.
Image

But than today came and it was all worth it.
Image

OH YA that's what I'm talking about :)

Devo - you are an inspiration! Great photo essay there - thank you. I just cut a couple of coppas off some pork butts last week and they are going through their first cure. Now I'm all the more excited about them. It is so hard to wait....

Going to start some bresaola too. Never done that before (or coppa properly).

So how's it taste??

Very nice indeed! Good goin'!
If it looks like a duck, walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, it probably needs more time on the grill! :D
