    Like the title says, my Umai soppressata has gotten to the 40%+ range of weight loss. So, how do I prevent it from drying too much and getting too hard? Any suggestions short of eating it all right away?

    Happy smoken.

  3. Cut into whatever portion you want, vac seal, and freeze. You could also vac seal and store out of light or in a fridge. I haven't had issues with degradation of the product when freezing.

    Never had a problem with it getting too hard----Not even when I was young.

    I also never had anything that lost a noticeable amount of quality from freezing, other than the one time I mistakenly froze a couple packs of smoked cheese.

    Vac seal and store in the frig. I'm enjoying a lonza stored this way for the last year and a half and it's like the day I packed it.

    I freeze dried meats I don't plan to eat in 2-3 weeks. Wrapped , in the fridge will not further dry.
