Default Homemade Salami

Made 70 lb. of salami a few weeks ago and has been hanging in my cellar to cure and dry. Made two types; Calabrian Hot Pepper and Fennel. The Fennel are the white moldy ones.

Was a ton of work. Each phase is very careful not to introduce mold or smear the fat. The salami needs to be slightly heated to inculcate the starter culture that is mixed in the pork. The white is mold solution wiped on to the casing and you can see how it spread in the air a little.

That is something to see! Sounds delicious, too.

Is there any concern that the mold could spread to the corks in the wine bottles?

I am not worried at all.

It would only be on the outside of corks and mold in some cases is wanted. Very common to see crazy mold on bottles in Bordeaux & Madeira chateau wine cellars. Humidity is high and I have read mold is a welcome thing to help the wines age even longer. Here is a quick picture I found online.




Here they are just now; a good week so since the previous picture:

Mmm... sopresatta. Beautiful work! Is your wine cellar humidified? .Just curious.

I have two legs for proscuitto hanging in my chamber right now. The plan is to go at least two years before slicing into them. I also have some nduja and guanciale in there too. I really need to make something else soon.

I had a humidifier going, but it's holding at 55f and 72%h without it. If the humidity drops down in the 50's, I'll turn it back on.

We are making 4 Culatello's in a few weeks, along with another 70-100 lb of salami in two different flavors than we have already

Culatello is one of my next projects. Reminds me I need to contact my farmer friends about primal cuts. Cant wait to see what you do next.

I am splitting it all with a friend. He wants to do this commercially. I wouldn't give a whole one as a gift, but I would give sliced portions out. I have a Berkel slicer, so at least I can slice the stuff.

Those are a big dollar projects and we need to finalize where we are getting the legs from. The salami is not as prime pig quality needed like a Culatello.

True. I have friends that raise American Guinea Hog, plus other heritage mutt breeds. That’s what I’ve been using for myself. They finish on black acorns in the fall. Man can you taste it. The fat is so good. Reminds me I need to check on my lardo that’s been curing for months.

Jealous of the Berkel too.

Oh, if you’re on FB, check out the Salt Cured Pig group. Lots of good info, from home hobbyists to commercial producers and farmers.
