We send out quarterly shipments every March, June, September, and December.
We recommend refrigeration to all our products for best taste and longest life.
We desire to deliver to your door the freshest handcrafted salami experience. Our shipments take 3-4 days to deliver across the country, so we only ship on Monday and Tuesday to make sure that you get your package before the weekend. Please make arrangements to have someone available to receive your shipment of artisan salami and Alle-Pia products.
For best results, keep it wrapped in the original butcher paper. Do not store your salami in a closed container or plastic bag, air needs to circulate around the salami and allow it to breathe. Freezing salami is not recommended. The salami will continue to dry the longer it is stored.
It it is kept refrigerated we recommend 3 months for the freshest taste. All our salami has a "Best by" date stamped on the label.
Yes. Every batch of salami requires careful supervision and timing to ensure the perfect taste and consistency. Salami is a fermented product and the meat is cured (not cooked). Unrefrigerated, the salami will age and continue to dry out.
Penicillin is a natural edible mold similar to the molds found on aged, soft cheeses. The mold acts as a natural barrier to protect the salami from spoilage during the aging process.
Alle-Pia Fine Cured Meats uses all natural casings. We do recommend removing the casing before consuming, however, the casing is safe to eat.
If your salami gets slimy or there is a change in its appearance or smell, it is usually due to improper storage. Salami is a living product and needs to breathe, and when it is suffocated or held at warm temperatures, it can affect its quality. If you notice these changes, it is still safe to eat, but we recommend you discard the salami due to a reduction in quality.
