Country Lore: Shave that Hard Salami

If your hard salami is too hard to chew don't give up. A grater can make it usable again.

I learned a neat trick from the crafty folks at Murray’s Real Salami in New York City. If you have some cured meat — such as hard salami — that has become too hard to cut or chew easily, unwrap it from its “skin” and run a a microplane grater over it. You can add the shaved meat Parmesan-style in scrambled eggs, soup, or pasta.
