cut or crumble?
    #450830 - 11/07/01 10:16 PM (16 years, 7 months ago)

If working with casings, is it better to cut cakes in slices or crumble them up and distribute evenly? Is it just a matter of preference or is there reasons for one or the other?

i have no long experience, but in the casing i'm working with right now, i'm getting crazy pins and shrooms above the slices and lesser numbers of pins/shrooms above the areas in between that i filled with crumbled cake. This is probably partly cause my crumbled layer wasn't super thick, but I would recommend covering as much of the bottom of your tray as possible with thick slices, then just crumble to fill in the small gaps.

i've never done this, but i've heard that casings work best if you keep the cakes whole, or maybe only slice them in half instead of in many slices, and then crumble other cakes to fill in the areas in between the whole cakes.

I wonder if it is bad to cut them too thin like thicker pepperoni or are cucumber like slices better, does anyone know why 1/2 or whole cakes work better?

I think it's because the mycelial network doesnt need to work as hard to re-establish itself. That, and if you are using a non nutritive casing then using more cakes = more nutrients for the mushrooms.
