1. Coppa by Jason Clarke

2% Salt
0.25% #2
0.5% BP
0.5% Juniper
0.5% Thyme
0.1% Garlic
Washed wine after 3 weeks. Black pepper, juniper, and thyme then reapplied and cased in a beef bung.

This one took 3.5 months at 10c 75%RH. Literally zero case hardening, which I put down to a new Inkbird humidity controller and the removal of a fan that I previously used. My chamber is small and really doesn’t need a fan, as I check it daily so getting enough movement.

From a post on The Salt Cured Pig.  2019.
