    This is a good recipe, but instead of boiling it I poke holes in the foil and put it on a cookie sheet, then bake it in a 200 degree F oven for 8 hours. Take it out of the oven and cut thick slices to make sandwiches while it’s still hot — lettuce tomato and mayo, YUM!

    About the wrapping salami in tin foil. Aluminum is one of the major causes of Alzheimers .
    It is especially dangerous when food is heated in it. Do your own research

    I would love to try this recipe as I am very much into homemade sausages and jerkies. But I am curious, do the small quantities of seasonings actually do well for 2lbs of meat?
