The World’s Best Salami

Published by:

All the world over there are hundreds of varieties of salami, thus proving that people of every culture love cured meats. But which country makes THE best salami? Much like the famous owl in the old Tootsie Pop commercials, the world may never know.

That’s because what we find to be the best is subjective. You might think some of the best stuff around comes from Italy, but a friend might feel that Spain does salami better. We can argue about these things all day, but the best salami is the one that you like the most.

With so many options, you’ll probably never figure out one best option. More likely, you’ll come away with several different salamis that you can’t get enough of. To properly enjoy salami, make sure you slice it very thin. Do this while it is still cold because it will slice easier, but once you slice it, let it sit out for around 15 minutes so the fat can soften. The flavors will open up, like a good wine, and it you will enjoy it infinitely more this way. Peeling it is important too. While the casing on salami is harmless, it will inhibit your true enjoyment of this delectable cured meat.

Cured meat junkies can get their fix with Olli, where we bring you quality cured meats made the traditional way for over 160 years. While going on a world tour is nice, you can find your best salami here in America without fumbling around for your passport.

Our Toscano salami is a must-try. It’s made with fennel grown from the wild hills in the Tuscan region of Italy. Intensely aromatic, it lends a chewy texture filled with complex earthy tones. With the fennel, you get undertones of licorice making for a splendid experience.

Fans of truffles should try the Tartufo salami and make it their new favorite. Savor this one bite for bite with its rich, soft and chewy pork texture mingling with truffles and seasonings to bring an earthy flavor. It’s ideal for making a special occasion even more memorable.

Perhaps you’ll find love with one of the other robust flavors of salami by Olli. Wild Boar is made with applewood-smoked cuts of wild boar meat, Chorizo is made in regular and hot varieties in the traditional Spanish way, and Norcino is a simpler salami with high-quality pork flavor that shines through.

Which of Olli’s salamis do you think is the best? If you’re not sure, you can taste them all to find out.

Pack And Play Vs. Crib: Innovations or Traditions?

Published by:

As times change, new innovational things move traditional ones aside. Equipment for kids isn’t an exception, as we see with the growing popularity of pack and plays. Our parents didn’t have a lot to choose from, but modern parents have a lot of different options to use. Some of them accept the progress and buy travel yards, but others prefer more traditional approach and buy cribs for their children. But what is better?

The Benefits of Using Pack and Plays

  • Firm sleeping/playing area.

Some children feel safer having less space to sleep. These are kids who get stimulated easily. By having all toys within hand reach the kid will be calm while falling asleep and busy for a long time when awake.

  • High safety level.

There’s no danger that your child will get their foot, arm or head through, which may cause an injure. There’s also less distance to the kid to fall while trying to climb out of the playard.

  • The ability to be taken outside.

It’s hard to take a crib outside for a child to sleep or play in it. With pack and play there’s no trouble going for a picnic or to a friend’s house for a holiday. It’s also a wonderful place to leave your kid when you have other things to do – the baby will be safe and busy with toys while you use your free time.

To buy a basic crib with a mattress and other necessary things you have to spend at least $300. Travel yards are much cheaper; you can find one for less than $100 or spend more for better versions with more details and options, such as a table or a canopy. For the latter check out the TOP-5: http://www.best-pack-n-play.com/top-5-playards-canopy/.

Will Your Child Outgrow Pack and Play Fast?

Many people say it’s a big con of such equipment, but it depends on what travel yard you buy. There are multiple modifications with various small tables and other details, including parts that can be enlarged. Think about all the details that may help you choose the best pack and play playard for your child.

What Option to Choose?

Depends on what is more comfortable for you as a parent and what your kid likes better. Some children feel more confident with less sleeping place, some like more space to feel free. Some parents are more confident about the traditional equipment to raise a child, others want to catch up with the progress. It’s a personal choice for every parent.
