I think she's mad at me..
 
figures I'm going crazy..
(actually according to her - I'm taking up too much space in the extra fridge in the pantry...)

Started ~ 10 lbs of Carne Salata to be ready before the holidays..
spice mix:

and ground up:

pork cushions in the rub to cure for 5-7 days:

here you see the salt is pulling some brine already: I'll be netting them in ~ 5 days and drying them.

and here's why she got mad... my 60 to 80 day project...
I got a nice 15.5 lbs fresh ham for $1.99/lbs- rubbed with Salt, Sugar, Ground up juniper berries and cure #2 - to cure for 30 days in the fridge, before hanging it to dry for 30-50 days...

now I ask you - what's up with that ??:mrgreen::mrgreen::mrgreen:

Just ordered my country ham from Edward's today. No way I'd get the green light on that project.

You're good as long as when she says you are "taking up too much space" she doesn't stop there.

Good looking projects you have there. I need to look up carne salata

well here some progress pics..
 
had to make some space in my dryer today - 'cause it's time to hang the Carne Salata..

moved out my leftover stash of Salamis and Dutch Dried Sausages "Drentse Gedroogde Worst"
and vacuum packed them to prevent them from drying out too much..

and then got busy with the Carne Salata..
out of the Cure..
http://sphotos-a.xx.fbcdn.net/hphoto...72954230_n.jpg

here's the netting..
http://sphotos-a.xx.fbcdn.net/hphoto...38969833_n.jpg

rinsed off the spices and soaked in cold water for ~ 10-15 minutes..
http://sphotos-a.xx.fbcdn.net/hphoto...57835444_n.jpg

put them in the netting - ready to hang and dry for ~ 15 days..
http://sphotos-b.xx.fbcdn.net/hphoto...14786214_n.jpg

and they will be ready to slice up just before Christmas - lets go find some real sweet melons !!

If she gets really ticked, just send that stuff my way. I'll take very good care of it.

Just trying to help a brother out here. :thumb:

Sounds like your sweetie might appreciate a third fridge for Christmas. :-P:wink:

Johnny_Crunch 12-07-2012 07:16 PM

That's some sexy pr0n!

tish 12-07-2012 09:36 PM

Looks to me as though they deserve their own dedicated fridge. Could make you both very happy. Merry Christmas? :wink:

chicagokp 12-07-2012 10:45 PM

Yes, I will store your wares at my place, just ship 'em over!
