Packed with whole black peppercorns and garlic, Murray’s Sopressata Salami is slow-aged to create a deeply porky and beautifully marbled salami. Pasture-raised, antibiotic-free, Heritage-breed pork matures over several months to develop its aromatic, meaty flavors. Decadent swirls of meat and fat distinguish this full-bodied salami, one that’s best enjoyed with a nutty Piave Vecchio and a dollop of Mitica Fig Jam.
- Murray’s Sopressata Salami is made by made by Olli Salumeria, an American-based producer that specializes in Italian cured meat traditions.
- The Sopressata is spiced with black peppercorn and garlic to give it a nuanced, rich flavor.
- Pasture-raised, antibiotic-free pork is coarsely ground to give the salami a fatty texture with high moisture levels.
- The casing is covered in a dusting of benign white mold, a “good” mold that cures the meat and fends off potentially harmful bacteria.
- The casing should be removed before eating.
- Salami production dates back centuries, when meat was smoked, fermented and dried out of necessity.
- The dry-curing technique used for salami requires humidity- and temperature-controlled drying.
- The humidity and temperatures used to cure the meat determine its texture and moisture levels, ranging from dry and fine to chewy and fatty, as well as its depth of flavor.
- Murray’s salami falls in the middle—firm with a slight chew at the finish.
- Murray’s Sopressata is an ideal hors d’oeuvre for any event, especially when paired with a medium-bodied red wine.
