The Boldog pepper is a mild chile pepper from Hungary, where they dry them and grind them up to make paprika to flavor everything from bread to soups to cured meats. Here in the US, Minneapolis-based master meat curers at Red Table Meat Co. found a local farmer growing Boldog peppers and used it to flavor their new Boldog salami.
The salami’s texture is soft and silky, with large pockets of white fat that melt on your tongue. The pepper flavor is incredibly bright, sweet, almost juicy like a bell pepper. There’s just a whisper of heat. The clean flavor lingers pleasantly for a long, long time.
Our recent catalog incorrectly listed the weight of the Boldog salami as 7 ounces. Instead it is closer to 10-11 ounces. Our apologies for the misprint!
This salami is a part of our Charcuterie Pop-Up Shop. We've brought on a handful of our latest, greatest cured meat finds for a limited, one-time carnivorous bonanza. When they sell out, that's it, they're gone!
