Chilli Salami - is there a source ?

Recommended Posts

My issue with most processed meats is the inclusion of nitrites which imo are unnecessary IF you pay close attention to the salt and acidity of your product (along with the necessary cleanliness of your processing area and supplier). I prefer an all natural product without the inclusion of the cancerous causing chemicals myself.

 

Ive been speaking with a few butchers/processed meat suppliers of late and they keep telling me there hands are tied by the likes of PrimeSafe and other licences required to prevent listeria poisoning etc..

Mmm salami.. I do love a good hot sopressa. I do agree that some of the commercial brands are a bit ho hum. Chorizo? Don't get me started. Most, if not all, of the supermarket brands are absolutely woeful. Bland and either full of sugar or paprika bleh. :sick: Have to source one from the Spanish grocery store on Johnston St Fitzroy..

 

For salami, try an Italian deli or pop in to Mediterranean Wholesalers on Sydney rd. for an imported, or at least better, option. There is also a huge Italian supermarket at Essendon Fields or DFO or whatever it is.. 

 

Ace Frehley's would probably be good too :thumb:

Two of my neighbours make their own salami each year. As usual I received a few of their products last week with their instructions on how long to let them mature. Being of northern European extraction I have my own views on how long salami should mature and the importance of the squeeze test. I saw that one of the cryo packs is labelled "chili". I remember last year and shudder. Want it?
