is it ok to have the hanging sausages touch each other in the drying chamber

Thanks I kind of thought that also.I made to large of a batch. I am going to try to split the batch or maybe put dowel pins in between the touching sausages
It sometimes does happen that they touch.  You get spots where they touch that the color does not develop, but the meat is still perfectly good to eat.  It just does not show the color like it would with separation.

thanks for the reply. I moved the salamis to two chambers and actually put them in the basement where the temp is better than the garage. Wife doesn't know yet. is reader supported and as an Amazon Associate, we may earn commissions from qualifying purchases.
