Recipe: Salami

cardfile icon 

Salami is made from meats like wild meats or goat that might be though and
needs grinding or often tastes like a wild meat you aren't used to. The
spiciness covers the taste. don't use any fat from wild meat except bear
since the others have the wild flavor concentrated in the fat. Wild sausage
that's part pork or pork sausage makes a fine breakfast sausage. Wild meat
is generally extremely lean. so you can combine it with really fatty pieces
of pork and it will benefit. You can use 1/4 to one-third pork. Season,
grind up. I just bag it up in baggies, tie with the wires and freeze. Each
bag holds enough for a breakfast. When we have plenty of wild meat and pork
I make it by the kettlefull. You can add black whole peppers after your
grinding to make it authentic. Sage, allspice, garlic, ground cardamom
seed, and onion powder are all good in it. After the meat is seasoned if
you want you can stuff it into casings. Smoke about 48 hours. Smoking is no
substitute for cooking. Freeze it and cook it when you are ready for a
sausage meal.
