So here’s a head to head of mine vs a commercial one. The one on the far left which was aged less, the one in the middle which was 6 weeks longer and the commercial one. I have another week of curing for the current batch then will adjust accordingly. I believe I’ll go another 6 weeks at the minimum mine is more tender then the commercial one and the flavor is about the same but drier and better chew.

Pepperoni style Lonzino

My last one from June. I won’t go into detail but I think I should have waited longer on some of them I’m finding. This one turned out well.

I’ll get it and replace the gasket next week so I’m the mean time, the meat heads for curing. I used the EQ method to cure each bag plus add the needed flavors to them. They all have a various amount of wine in them for the color to absorb in the curing state. I’m hoping to get the color to bleed throughout the muscle meilleur tauxso the color should be pretty nice. The Mini Lonza are three flavors. Each bag has two tenderloins in them so I’ll be hanging everything after it cures. The Bresaola is Similar to Ruhlmans recipe. The Coppo is pretty traditional. See them in three weeks for the washing, wrapping and netting.

Hello everyone. Thank you for exposing this with us, I find it important! However, a detail trots me a little, I would like to expose it if it is possible. Thank you for your return.  Good luck to all

Thanks TX! I'm two months almost into the next batch. I'm planning on hanging these at the end of the month and let them go for 6 months or more. The taste test was close to the flavor of the manufactured version just not as dry. I kind of preferred the drier version. The next round are definitely more Spanish influenced as half of them are the Spanish style. Should be interesting.

Exactly one month in the umai bags which I initially thought it was two.

Interesting thus far. My total weight loss is between 5-12% depending on the item. Each were placed in a similar bag, sealed the same way but different losses.

Check it out:
Savory capicola 12%
Spicy capicola 12%
Savory Lomo 8%
Spicy Lomo 5%

You betcha. It’s a learning process. The first two batches came out well. I’m hoping to see how these turn out but it’s just time like watching the paint dry.
