Natural Molds!

We handcraft each stick of salami using fresh, natural ingredients. We also use the traditional methods of charcuterie-making by using live, active molds! To begin, we hand cut premium pork leg, shoulder and fatback, then grind and mix it with fresh garlic and spices. After stuffing it into natural hog casings, and hanging on racks, we move it into our incubator, where it is inoculated with live molds. The salami ferments for 48 hours before moving into our drybox.

This mold does many things! One, it helps protect the salami during the curing process from other bad bacterias. Two, it helps slow down and regulate the curing process, creating more consistency in the salami. Lastly, it helps add a level of flavor to our salami that is nearly impossible to recreate. Slowly developing flavor over time, the mold mellows the acidity from the fermentation process and creates a deep, funkier, sacred flavor. You cannot fake the flavor.

How to Enjoy it

Ideally you own a professional slicer, or the equivalent. If not, never fear! You can slice the salami as thin as possible with a sharp chef’s knife. Once sliced, your options are limitless. Use it as a pizza topping. Fold the salami and skewer it with green olive, sardines and roasted peppers to make a Spanish-style tapas. Render it crispy and have it be the crunch on top of your next salad. Wrap prawns with it, or julienne it and add it to a mussels and clams dish.

Peel the netting and the casing. These casings are much thicker than our small salamis in order to control quality during curing.
