Homemade Summer Sausage Aka Salami

Recipe by morelhunter
READY IN: 1hr 40mins
YIELD: 4 rolls




  • Mix together all ingredients in a nonmetal bowl. It is easier to mix the seasoning with the water, then incorporate the meat, using your hands to distribute all spices evenly (like making a meatloaf). A note, based on a review, do not over mix the meat or it will be tough. This is true about any kind of meat, work it just enough to get every thing incorporated.
  • I use an ice cream bucket and place a lid on top.
  • Refrigerate for 24 hours.
  • Remove from bowl and roll into 4 rolls, about 1 1/2 to 2 inches thick.
  • Wrap in aluminum foil with shiny side towards meat.
  • Punch tiny holes along one side and place in a broiler pan with holes down to drain out liquid.
  • Bake at 325 degrees for 1 1/2 hours.
  • Remove foil and rewrap in plastic wrap.
  • Ready to use or freeze.
