Nephew gave me some venison this week and asked me to make some jerky and/or sausage,  Thought I'd try some Landjager, the easy type.  The recipe calls for fermento.  Is there something I can substitute for this or do I need to order this on-line.

Thanks

I've looked and can't confirm......   Saco cultured buttermilk is very similar if not the same thing..  Grocery store item .....

: A cultured  blend of sweet cream, churned buttermilk, sweet dairy whey, and lactic acid.

Thanks all for the quick replies.  I will try the buttermilk and see how it tastes!

We took the plunge last night and made up 10 lbs of landjaeger last night.  Hopefully they turn out OK.  We did use the buttermilk but only had 29-32mm casings so they appear rather large.  Made up 6-8" links and they are pressed and resting in the refrigerator till I can get home from work to run them thru the smoker.  Hopefully they all fit.  I will try to get some pictures later.
