It´s all in the seasoning – Ham and salami from the DRY AGER curing cabinet?
What do I need to make my own ham and salami?
Thanks to the new SmartAging® Technology you can make countless ham and salami specialties from all over the world yourself with your DRY AGER maturing cabinet. For example South Tyrolean bacon, Black Forest ham, Bündnerfleisch (Swiss air-dried beef), beef jerky and pastrami. Or sausage varieties such as Kaminwurzen, Chorizo, Milanese and Hungarian salami through to Merguez sausages or Chinese Lap Cheong. For homemade ham & sausage you only need the right fresh meat, and for the salamis the right sausage casing. And the typical spices – but lots of them.
Is it worth buying the spices individually?
If you make several kilos of ham and sausage yourself every month with the DRY AGER maturing cabinet, you could also buy the necessary spices individually, mortar or grind them and weigh them out. Depending on the project, however, this can be quite time consuming: Different types of pepper such as Tellicherry or Szechuan, nitrite curing salt, juniper berries, mustard seeds, coriander seeds, garlic granules, ginger, carrot powder, sage, cloves, cumin, thyme, oregano, savory, paprika, marjoram, cardamom, onion granules, jalapeño chili powder, glucose, cane sugar, dextrose, palm sugar, demerara sugar, allspice, mace, cinnamon, nutmeg, pimentón de la vera, fennel seeds, dried lemon peel, harissa, ras-el-hanout, aniseed, fivespice, celery salt – who wants to put all this in their store or pantry?
