Mahalo for the reponse…I believe I cured it in the fridge about 7-10 days. I checked for firmness and it seem quite firm to me. I do believe that you are correct in that I jumped the gun a bit. I resealed the coppa and will wait another month to see how it turns out. The Meat was on sale and it was a good time for me to experiment on the coppa. Meat is very very expensive here in Hawaii…so I hate to waste.
