salami dried to impossible
Friend came for dinner with a selection delicious dried sausage/salami. One was impossible to cut, it is so dried. We hacked through part and it was delicious but really cannot be sliced and I'm looking for suggestions of what to do with the rest of it.
Chunk or cube as small as possible, or shred with a vegetable peeler and simmer in a pot of tomato based sweet and sour cabbage soup.
My grandfather always used the ends of dried salami as well as older dried out sausages as the meat flavoring in the cabbage soup.
I still dice salami into my cabbage soup, even if I don't have dried, but dried is so less greasy.
I was just having the same problem with my favorite cacciatore sausage. Tried to use a truffle shaver with limited success. The little slivers are tasty though. wish I had something like this: http://www.highlandwoodworking.com/he...
or better yet, the old fashioned wooden Japanese Katsuobushi grater.
