difficulty removing casing after drying

Post by fatboyz » Sun Mar 26, 2017 15:21

Just got back from 2 weeks in Cuba. I left the chamber alone and all is well. My Genoa and sopressatta are down to a perfect 40% weight loss. I threw one of each into the fridge to firm them up a bit for slicing. I had one bigger 65 of Genoa in a regular fibrous casing as I ran out of the small protein lined ones. Looking to peel and try it but the casing is very difficult to remove. I haven\t tried one of the protein lined ones yet but am planning to peel them and vac pac them today. Will chilling them all help the casing come off easier once they stiffen up a bit?

Hola! Just place the salami into a plastic bag and into the fridge for 24 hrs. Casings should peel off easier.
