Went on a great course today
« on: August 15, 2015, 10:18:13 pm »
It was pork curing. In the morning we made some pancetta and in the afternoon a salami type sausage.
Really enjoyed the day and it's made me want to do more. Need to have a look at various equipment now  ;D

It was at Cwmcrwth Farm, Llandeilo
www.cwmcrwthfarmcottages.co.uk
The courses are for between 5 and 8 people. I was lucky in that there were 5 friends of mine wanting to do it so we had a course put on especially for us.
We had a home made lunch too of their own ham (which actually tasted of ham) fresh bread and salad.

This is the salami type sausage that I made last week.
I forgot to weigh it at the time so have just done it and it weighs 748g. I will weigh it regularly to make sure it looses weight.
