I no longer eat much processed meats, or any red meat for that matter -exception is I sometimes cook with a bit of chorizo, and I do still eat bacon sometimes also.

I once knew a guy who worked in a large smallgoods factory in Sydney and he explained how they make salami and I stopped eating it then even though I liked it!!
by Finy
Yes. I really enjoy cured meat.
by Vee
and I really love you pic :)

by jonaja
:-D I tried to post one up of cured mets...but my display will have to do, LOL!
by Vee
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.
hmm, that sounds SO tempting -about to go to shops!! do I have will power?
by Finy
I know....I am so tempted to do similar!!! Coles had the Sopressa on special here,so I bought some on Friday!! Yes,I think I SHALL have this for my lunch today!!
by Jules
Oh, Jules! I prefer hot sopressa. And mustard you say? Which one?
by Vee
I like a good French seeded mustard.Love it with roast beef too!!!
by Jules
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.
by Rice
OnlY cold roast beef or a little ham.
That's it.
Not a fan of the others.

Yes, I can take ham on occasion too, but it has to wafer thin or I gag.
by Rice
Yes me too, but if very thin lovely on fresh bread :)
by jonaja
Oooh. With a smear of English mustard. Mmmm.
by Rice
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.
by fran.
Not really. If a recipe requires it, I just don't make that recipe. I try to keep away from processed meat.
Yes, love them. Though it has to be paper-thin. Prosciutto, mortadella, double-smoked ham...mmmm. And it's especially nice with things like cheese, artichoke hearts, olives, tomato etc.
Yes, yes, and yes. If we gave up everything that's supposed to be bad for us, what happens to our immunity system?
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?
by Rice
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.
by helga
I love processed meats and have for many years
Now I consider them unhealthy and do my best to avoid them.
No - too salty for me, and you never know what rubbish they are adding to them. I'm also not a big meat-eater anyway.
I stopped eating processed meat years ago.
Salami, not too often.
Chorizo, now & again.
Veal German, frequently.
Thinly sliced corned meat, or ham off the bone I love.
Years ago, i use to buy processed meats, when I didn't know better, Now I just keep a chorizo in the freezer, in case a recipe calls for 1,
by Miro
No, I like to eat healthy food choices.
I do eat salami, but not chorizo.
No Processed meats.....
