First let me say that this recipe is a Len Poli one, Its his Ginger Salami. You can google it and go right to the recipe.
Its very user friendly and you dont need all the fancy expensive controls and meters to make it. You will need cure 2 and some sort of culture.

Im going to change up the recipe a bit and do an addition later after grinding.

Instead of whole black peppercorns i opted for fresh ground corse.

Going in a bag and fridge for 2 hours while i go get some vermouth and prep my other addition and fermentation.

Used my cheap hand grinder. Lot easier than pulling out the 5 LEM.

My first 2 additions to the mix. nfpdm (ground fine) and mace.
yeah i know the recipe calls for nfpdm anyways but i never added it.

Not pictured is the vermouth and fermentation liquid.
