Salametti translates to little salami and originated as a hunter’s sausage. The size and shape were meant to fit easily into the coat pocket of hunters so that on long days they had something to eat. I’ve wanted to make some of this for quite some time as it’s a great little snack for work and I’m able to get spectacular beef from my farmer’s market along with the great pork I already have.
The spicing is simple as you’ll see below and the process is no different than any other salami. The one thing of note is that you’ll want to use the smallest hog casing you can find and make your links about 6″ long. Remember, you want to make this small.
