For the couple I bumped into today buying some South Melbourne dim sims – how good are they!!! – here is the link to my salami 101.
The thread is very long and is full of lots and lots of info on salami making so it is well worth a read. Read the first three or four pages and you will get the low down and basics about making salami at home. The one secret I have learnt after doing this for 10 years is to mix the meat really really really well before stuffing it into casings!
Enjoy. Any questions leave them in comments and I will answer them.
