Genoa with only a few spices always amazes me in the taste department.

This was made using the Marianski recipe with only a few differences. ... lami-genoa

Dextrose was upped to .4, and fermented at 80f (27c) for the first 12 hours, then back to 68-70f.

3" or 76mm protein lined casings.

It will all turn the darker reddish color of the perimeter in another month..but after 8 weeks I just had to give it a try!

Nice work looks professionally made! Did you use the Bactoferm 600 on the salami?

Bob - I'm really impressed! Where do you buy your protein lined casings?

Bob, the genoa looks perfect! ImageAnd you are right. Sometimes less is better. Too often we are tempted to use every spice on the rack.

Since Bob linked this recipe to a recent thread for Blue Monkey I definitely want to try this. If I don't have protein lined casings would a normal fibrous 65 or 75 that I use for semi dried salami work?

Ron since this salami is dry cured the regular fibrous casings don't adhere well as the meat shrinks and can create air pockets for unwanted stuff to grow. Protein lined, collagen or natural work much better. Lately I have been using 90mm collagen.

Ahh thanks for the info. I'll see what I can find locally.
I wonder if anyone has processed their own natural? How much work is is? Going moose hunting next week!

Hi Bob.

In the recipe it States The following spice and herb combination can be found in some recipes:

spices: 4 parts coriander, 3 parts mace, 2 parts allspice, 1 part fennel.
herbs: 3 parts marjoram, 1 part thyme, 1 part basil.

To make 1 kg sausage about 1.5 g of spices and 1 g of herbs are needed"

Do you recommend this, and is it herbs AND spices. or Herbs OR Spices?

Ron- Butterbean does and I am sure he will comment.

I have only made the plain version without the added spices and herbs.
I would read it as make a spice mix + a herb mix and add the spice and herb combos at the rate of 1.5 spices and 1g herbs
