Soppressata

My dad and I made a batch week before last. Here it is hanging to dry. It should be ready around Christmas. We started with 18 pounds of pork and it will lose around 30% - 40% of its weight when it's done. We did a trial run earlier this year and it turned out pretty darn good.

I love that stuff. I don't have the know-how to make it yet.
Get a chair, some whiskey, and sit there and watch it cure. Very relaxing.

It's at my fathers in his basement. It's in an old pump house where the temp stays around 40 - 50* and he has was to control the humidity.

Temp and humidity are the important things...especially the humidity part..not enough and that stuff dries from the outside in...

We'ver made sausages together a couple of times. He's a pisser because he gets all upset and starts yelling and cursing when things don't go perfect. Most of the time I'm just telling him to relax, this is what we need to do next..... Then my mom will come in and we laugh as we talk about my father. He doesn't hear to good anymore so we can say things with him standing right there with us!
