Charcutepalooza – The Year of Meat

In previous posts I have mentioned my goal to make real pickle-brined pea meal bacon. This charcuterie itch obviously is spreading quickly because not a week later I received a birthday gift that included the book Charcuterie: The Craft of Salting, Smoking and Curing by Michael Ruhlman as well as all of the ingredients for making duck prosciutto from my sister and brother-in-law. They also gave themselves the same gift.

My new bible

 

In the card there was a link to two food blogs, Mrs. Wheelbarrow and The Yummy Mummy, which have jointly created Charcutepalooza – The Year of Meat. (Twitter hashtag #charcutepalooza) The object being to learn, in a community, the art of charcuterie by undertaking one charcuterie challenge a month for the entire year. The first challenge is duck prosciutto, of course! 

The duck breasts are now thawing and we will keep you posted as we progress.
