I know a guy who used to work in Sydney for one of the largest smallgoods firms.
At a dinner party once he told us how they make salami and what goes into it...at the time I loved salami (and probably still do).
However I was really turned off it and stopped eating it almost every day.
Now that I dont often eat red meat, I also no longer eat small goods - sausage etc on my lunches, so the answer is NO I rarely eat those highly processed "meats" any more apart from bacon.
I am not one for sausages, frankfurts, cheerios, luncheon meats of any type at all, and to have these on bread is even less appetising!! However I do like Prosciutto which is just smoked meat and other items along THIS line( such as bacon!)
And I do admit to enjoying, occasionally, extremely thinly shaved Sopressa salami.It has to be so wafer thin though, that it almost fals apart!! I like to eat it with fresh juicy grapes!!The contrast of flavours and textures is delightful. But these are the only 'smallgoods' I can eat. Always in very small quantities!!
Some of those "smallgoods" are delicious when you get good quality ones, and yummy on fresh rye bread too. Not over processed factory ones but nice deli ones from markets etc, People in Europe survive very well with these foods in their diets.
It is written……that most small goods are no good for your health. Most must be full of fat because they taste so good. Most Europeans eat a fair amount of them, and they don't seem to be doing too bad (health wise). If I end up in a good deli, I always take a small amount home for me. Everything in moderation.
