Uncured Applewood Smoked Salami
November 6th, 2017—Fearlessly Archived—Still a fun read; price & availability may have changed.
Have you ever wondered why high-end Italian-made salumi tastes so very good? Has it ever struck you that using traditional methods to make those same meats stateside should produce the same results, but often doesn’t? We know why. All other inputs being equal, it’s the quality of the meat delivered to the salumi artisan that determines the quality of the finished product. Seems simple enough, right? Perhaps strangely, then, there are numerous producers of Italian-style meats that don’t take this into proper consideration. For Trader Joe’s Uncured Applewood Smoked Salami, we are working with a vendor who’s well aware of the correlation between quality raw pork and quality salami.
This Uncured Applewood Smoked Salami uses a combination of smoking and salt curing, thus combining the best of traditional Italian techniques with those of Northern Europe. Formed with high quality cuts of pork raised in the U.S. without antibiotics, the sausage is seasoned and aged for a minimum of 12 weeks, a time-honored practice that allows the flavors to develop. The Salami is then cold smoked with applewood, imparting a distinctive taste we haven’t found in other salami. It’s produced without added nitrates or nitrites (except those naturally occurring in celery juice and sea salt), and available only at your neighbhorhood Trader Joe’s.
We’re selling each four ounce Uncured Applewood Smoked Salami for $3.69, a phenomenal value. You’ll find it in our refrigerated case.
Ingredients: PORK, SEA SALT, NATURAL FLAVORINGS, TURBINADO SUGAR, WINE, GROUND WHITE PEPPER, LACTIC ACID STARTER CULTURE, GARLIC.
