Many thanks Oakley.

Just one question, why do you process to 58°F - is there a specific reason, or is it that you want to process as much as possible but it will split above this temp? i.e. If I can process it enough without getting anywhere near 58 degrees does it matter?

i am not sure the scientific answer to that question. but i think that when it is in the machine it takes a while to reach that temp so instead of spliting the mix it will not cause you any harm to have it at alower temp but the 58 degrees is the ideal temp i normally get it preety spot on with in 5 degrees. also i started making the mortadella when i was in colorado and the alttitude was diffrent to were i live at the momment ( lake placid new york) i move back to th e uk in april so we will c what happens there..
