September 7 is National Salami Day! A type of cured sausage made using fermentation, salami has been around for centuries due to its preservability. Once cut, it can be stored at room temperature for up to 40 days. Its origin isn’t clear, but it is said to date back before ancient Rome. The salami is as delicious as it is timeless! The ingredients vary depending where the salami originates, although the meat is typically beef, pork, or veal. Some of the other ingredients that can be added are minced fat, herbs and spices, salt, vinegar, and even wine. You can learn all about the different types of salami in this article from Nonna Box!
