Capicola day!

Soaked in brine for 2 days with pink salt #2 and spices
Rinse with water then give it a red wine bath and pat dry

Casings soaking with oranges in water and bactoferm
Seasoned with paprika, cayenne, fennel pollen, black pepper, and ground juniper berries. 
Easy way to put on netting, otherwise impossible

Remember to tie and weave cord at the end prior to stuffing. 
Tie and ...cut the cord. 

in the pig locker

Hanging and waiting for the magical 33% weight loss!
