The best way to describe it would be to say it’s dreadfully bland. The produces all look good, smell good, and feel good, however, there’s hardly any flavor. It tastes nothing, and I mean nothing, like the batch we made following the video recipe–which was absolutely fantastic. While the various flavors in Soppressata, Pepperoni, and Salami are discernible, the differences are very subtle, and overall the products are too bland. Not unlike the difference between a Cadillac (video recipe) and a Pinto (pre-mixed batch).
15 pounds of meat. Three spice-packs plus the other ingredients. Casing material–all in the trash. Very disappointing indeed.
