OK, I didn't grow up on goetta but I married a Cincinnati guy and he loves it. Since we live in L.A. now, I have to make it myself for him. I followed this recipe to the letter except for a couple of bay leaves I added. My husband says it tastes totally authentic but he does want more salt in his so I will probably add another couple of teaspoons next year. NOTE: I ended up with 11 pounds of goetta with this recipe! I had to cook it in one crock pot and one dutch oven. A HUGE amount! I poured it into standard loaf pans (several!) and chilled overnight. Then, I took each "loaf" and cut it lengthwise to give me a cylinder which I then rolled into a sheet of plastic wrap to resemble the logs you get if you buy Gliers goetta. Wrap in foil and fill your freezer with porky goodness for the year! Thank you Sarge!
