Buon Giorno, Vi volevo domandare se mi potete inviare una ricetta per fare la soppressata e salsiccia Calabrese. La buona anima di mio Papá, era Calabrese ( di Regio Calabria) e faceva soppresata e salciccia a casa e dice mia mamma che Papá metteva 27 o 28 grami di sale per Kilo di carne di maiale, pero il pepe nero intero, pepe nero maccinato e il pepe rosso secco, lo metteva dice mamma a occhio, senza pesando. Io vorrei fare a casa la soppressata e salciccia tipo Calabrese e vorrei pesare esatto tutti gli ingredienti. vi ringrazio, mi scusi se non ho scritto molto bene Italiano. Ciao e grazie, Viva La Italia. Jim L.
