Can't believe I just found this, farmer! I've been interested in trying dry curing for a while (I have Cappicola & Pancetta in CMAi bags just a couple of ounces from target). I'm out of room at home, but I figured I could find space at work for an old fridge in the warehouse. A fermentation chamber has stymied me though. When I saw the mini greenhouse I think I heard a choir singing Hallelujah! Great idea! Thumbs Up

Big pepperoni finally done. Dried for almost 2 months. Vac sealed and gonna slice as needed and revac seal.



Thin slice. Held together great.





Added a bressola a few days ago. Got some nice mold growth so far.



Looks like I have room for something else now.
WOW, that is awesome ! Very nice job bud... Thumbs Up :drool

Sliced some pepperoni and coppa for a frozen pizza for dinner









The fat you see in the coppa just disappeared when eating it. Don't even know it's there but added flavor.

I did try it uncooked, didn't care for the flavor. I did a white wine rinse on this one. Tasted great cooked.
