On Saturday I worked in garden doing some pruning and pulling weeds. Then yesterday we got around 4 inches of snow and the temp dropped to below zero. We also had a white Christmas this year, so it's been a cold winter. Last week we got back from a two week tour in India. After seeing how life is over there, I don't care about the weather, just happy that I am living here.

a two week tour in India
O my, I used to do a lot of traveling, but never that far. Wow, it sounds very interesting and cool.
But from the sounds of it, your glad to be home.

It is a crazy winter, weather wise this year even down here in the north eastern US.

One day it's 20*f.. the next it's 37*f... then down to 27^f and back up to 50^f
Today was spring at 65*f and tomorrow may hit 70^f.
But back down to the 30's the next.

Yes I got the same answer from Miroslaw at Sausage Maker.
That is one lucky guy, what a sweet thing to win.

And I always have my eyes open for the next contest.

If you are planning to order supplies in the near future from the Sausage Maker, use coupon code SCOTT10 to get a 10% discount.

Do you know when that code expires?

Those codes are good to know, but they don't up my game and/or push me into ordering, just to save a buck or two.
I just go wit the flow, when I need something, I order it.
If it's a big order, I may wait and hunt around, but for the most part, I just order what I need.
I feel those extras and/or bonus coupons are just pushing you and I don't fall for that.

I am going to make ( attempt ) orange lonzino using umai bags my question is I buy peeled garlic then wiz it in a blender with a little olive oil then put it in a plastic bag and store it in the freezer is it safe to use ? Is the oil a factor ?

Thanks G pop

I feel the garlic is still as I do the same thing with my garlic, blender, then jar it and store it in refrigerator for use.
I wouldn't use it for making any dry cured sausages though, I feel it will hinder the fermentation and drying processes.
Good luck with the Lonzino, I have one that has just finished drying in the Umai bag, took 4 months.

You definitely don't want add oil, it will inhibit drying, most of the time I use dry chopped. The flavor is almost stronger than fresh, and hard to beat the convenience.
