Why thank you.... so do I. I do hope your daughter is getting better though.
Good to hear John...I know she did not want to have to spend the vacation inside.Last time I checked my grandparenting folder it said equal parts of sugar, spice, and everything nice. Enjoy your stay, weather back home here in NC is a real drag right now as you may know. You lucky dog! Bob
This pepperoni is damn good. Why was it discontinued at world market? Is the company gone?
Whole Foods carries every VT Smoke and Cure product EXCEPT the pepperoni. The manager was very willing to special order it for me but has no intention of adding it to their regularly stocked items?!?!
I think this company was in RI.
John - I believe it is because the pepperoni contains sodium nitrite and other additives, whereas the other products do not.John
Did the list of ingredients in the "no nitrite / nitrate" pepperoni contain celery powder or celery juice? If so, then that is the source of the nitrates in the pepperoni that are necessary to prevent the proliferation of Clostridium botulinum during the curing process. A pepperoni or other dry-cured sausage made with no source of nitrate may not be safe to eat. The nitrate is probably there in most of those "no nitrite / nitrate added" products. It's just coming from natural vegetable sources rather than from a curing salt that has nitrite or nitrate added to it.
