I used to eat lots of of cold cuts cause they are so tasty! But not anymore, after i watched the documentary on SBS which shows you how much salt goes into makig cold cuts. So, i have them on occassion now and ifi buy them then i make sure its from the local farmers market rather than my local supermarket
Much as I know how bad it is for me,I do sometimes enjoy a bit of very thinly shaved mild sopressa salami!! When I was in my late teens,I would love salami and mustard sandwiches for my lunches.I'd make a week's worth and freeze them individually to take to work. I have not had them for ages though.
I have never been a fan of salami, kabana, cabanossi etc. I would be unlikely to eat that sort of thing more than once a year. I find anything like that very salty and very fatty. I am not keen on any processed meats really.
Yes, love a ham and tomato sandwich or ham and mustard but you are so right, absolutely has to be wafer thin. Sometimes at Supermarket deli sections the ham is cut like this awful ham steaks from the 1970s. Don't buy the shaved stuff as I can't tell how much fat is in it. But wafer thin cold cuts……love them.
I avoid it because it's always touted as carcinogenic. Also, the big taboo on pregnant mothers eating the stuff has to ring warning bells. Doesn't it carry a high risk of listeria, botulism, salmonella, etc?
Hi Rice. Yes, we are told lots of foods should be avoided when pregnant but I ate all these things, including seafood when I was pregnant years ago when none of this advice was around and I never suffered nor my three girls. Sometimes I think we take things too far and shouldn't believe all we see or hear.
