Bought an A&H cervelat. Do I hang to dry or eat as is?

  1. I personally like to hang 'em to dry, for about a month or so. But that's only if you like it dried out and a with a bit more of a "kick"...they are also quite tasty as is. Either way, enjoy!

    By the way, if you DO like a "kick", the hot and spicy cervalat is AMAZING!!

      Just purchased one today. If I want to dry it out, should I take it out of the plastic wrapper and leave it w/only a paper wrapper?

    2. What exactly is cervelat?

        Basically a semi-dry salami meat that you can hang up to dry out...they come in regular and hot & spicy, and I've also seen them with black pepper pieces cooked in. I use A&H brand, though I'm sure other companies must make 'em.

          That sounds tasty, thought quite unhealthy.

            I've never associated cervelat with kosher in particular - I ran into it in Germany everywhere, and it was usually beef, but sometimes had pork. The Metzger across the street used pork. S&W makes both all beef and b/p - I doubt that even the all beef is certified. Not exactly what I think of as a Kosher salami...


        2. I eat as is.
