This product is hand made in small batches by a small unique crafter in Madison, WI. These guys are very new to the scene, but have developed some superb charcuterie items that we offer not only on our website, but in our store and distribute to wholesale clients all over Wisconsin.
Underground's rendition of a non-traditional Pepperone is made up of 100% all natural pork that is fully cured, with anise, paprika, fennel, and cayenne.
TIPS FOR YOUR MEATS: Think of cured meats like cheese: they are best kept refrigerated. Although they are considered to be shelf stable, unrefrigerated cured meats (like some cheese) may begin to diminish in quality after a week or so depending on conditions, whereas refrigerated cured meats will be good for several months. Store in a plastic bag to keep the meat from drying out or oxidizing. Serve at room temp for best flavor and texture.
A NOTE ON MOLD: A powdery dusting of benign white mold helps to cure the salami evenly while fending off bad bacteria. It is safe to eat, or the casing can be removed before eating.
Expect to receive 1 @ 6 oz paper wrapped Pepperone per order. Refrigeration is recommended for this product.
