    NorCal: watching the specks and sprig work
    Yessir, fratello. :) We have a (former) box car refrigerator. I was certain that it would not be humid enough with the fan running, but it is plenty humid in there. We have an old deer rack that we are planning to hang some day. (Big buck. One of my father's last. :( ) It's covered in white mold. First year hanging in there and very pleased with the results. :)

    Tonno di Maiale (Pork “Tuna”) appears to be a success. Jar-ed it up tonight. Prelimary taste test is pretty dang good. Has to “age” at least 3 days, so will let you know this weekend.
    I imagine eating it on a brushed-in -olive oil (probably from the jar) toasted French bread slice, atop a slice of mozzarella or fontina or bel paese cheese :cool:

    It was very tasty. Easy to make, too. Having said that, not sure that I'd do it again.

    A small update: I tried doing this with beef (a chateau). It was very good, but the pork version is much better. Will not make the beef one again; definitely will make the pork version again.
    It is a bit rich, but would be awesome when the cold weather hits. :)

    EDIT: in the above picture, the olive oil is clear (obviously). Once refrigerated, the oil congeals and is actually better.

    EDIT 2: I am really thinking of making an American style ham. Say a 7 pounder. Anyone care to share their favorite (non-smoked) recipe? And whether one could use that same recipe to make a smoked version (if I decide to give that a try). I think that'll I'll start a new thread about this ;)
