    This is an excellent no/low fat salami. Followed the recipe exactly; however, will probably add a pinch of garlic to the next batch. I also will be rolling it over once an hour during the baking process as it was a bit flat on the bottom side. So glad to have found this as husband is a hunter; always looking for new and healthful ways to use venison.

    Just finished my first batch of this salami. My husband loves it. He can't wait to take some to deer camp this year. This recipe is very simple. I tried turning the loaves while they were cooking as the first reviewer suggested, however, it didn't work so well for me(They seemed to roll back to the original position.) I thought they turned out quite rounded anyway. Thank you for the recipe! Will use it many times.

    Fairly easy to make. I didn't turn my loaves, but the shape didn't matter to me, we ate the evidence! Great use for all of the ground venisen I have been given for helping friends process their own deer. Thanks for the great recipe.


Zaar...Wow, what a place! I'm one of the old timers of Zaar. I can't count the number of wonderful dishes I cooked in the past few years since joining. Along the way I have had the pleasure of meeting several Zaar chefs. Talk about your fruits and nuts! lol. I have enjoyed meeting them all. Family: What's to say...I have had the same sweet husband forever (Good thing....I'd hate to have to break a new one in...=) and live close to a couple of grown children. (Maybe you've met Smoke Alarm Jr. ..her brown rolls are sooo good!) Therefore, my family gets together often to enjoy each other's company and cooking. My greatest joy is six "little to tallerthanme" kids running around calling me Grammy. They wear me out! lol For the past thirty years I have been a Special Education teacher for grades 9-12 and love it. Took some time off last year to recovery from surgery, chemotherapy and radiation for breast cancer. (Loved the radiation....I keep imagining that we are absolutely napalming the nasty cancer cells tohellandback to keep the little suckers from returning. =) My prognosis is good and now "I'm back in the saddle again". lol. Being a north country "gurl", I am happiest outside...walking, fishing, sitting in front of an outdoor fire or being on water (although in February it's a bit stiff....=0) When indoors I like to read, garden, knit, quilt and paint. During cold Maine weather I like to warm my feet on a very large ( 100 pounds of long legs and huge feet), sweet and furry golden retriever named Kerry (aka KTBRD: Kerry the big red . In the summer, the dawg and I round up the grandkids, hit the local dairy bar for a Mounds Sundae that is to die for!!!=0) . Then spend a lot of long and lazy summer days at camp . All in all...Boy, Life is good! =)
