Few weeks back i made up 2 chubs of salami to put in my cure cabinet. Tonight i needed to slice one and look. Here is what i seen. When i tied the chubs they were tied tight. Notice the shrinkage. Sorry i didnt have the flash on The casing used is protein lined. Im happy with how they are progressing. They do need a few more weeks as they are still soft in the middle. Going to re hang and let them go. Next time i will make smaller length chubs.
