Maestri d'Italia Sliced Salame Rustico
- by Maestri d'Italia
The charcutiers of Parma have skills that go beyond prosciutto-making, and their know-how is on display in Maestri’s simple, savory-sweet Salame Rustico. The pork is seasoned with a traditional blend of salt, pepper, and garlic, making for a versatile and crowd-pleasing cured meat. Add these substantial slices to your platter with a creamy Italian selection like Cossanella or Quattro Portoni Quadrello for a decadent spread.
- Maestri crafts this salami in Parma, Italy, but slices it in the United States, ensuring the final product is both traditionally made and incredibly fresh.
- Salami is one of the most popular types of Italian salumi (cured meats), made by chopping or grinding meat and supplementary fat, salting and seasoning the mixture, and stuffing into casings.
- The sausages are hung to cure, ferment, and dry, which is where the salami firms up to its final texture, develops its flavor, and becomes more shelf-stable.
- Salami can contain a range of flavors and spices—this one is seasoned simply with salt, pepper, and garlic.
