How to Peel Salami

Salami is a meat that already has been processed, cooked and wrapped in a collagen casing that allows just enough moisture to get to the meat to keep it soft. The casing is edible but is hard to chew, which makes eating the salami much less pleasant. By following a few simple steps, you can remove the outer casing without cutting away too much of the meat itself.

  1. 1

    Cut about 1/2 inch off from the tip of the salami with a small, sharp kitchen knife.

  2. 2

    Stick the tip of the knife between the inside of the casing and the edge of the meat, as far lengthwise for as much of the salami that you want to eat.

  3. 3

    Rotate the blade of the knife around the inside of the encasement and make sure the blade always faces away from you.

  4. 4

    Cut the edge of the encasement lengthwise with the knife and peel it off with one pull. Now you can cut and serve the salami.
