This week’s recipe is brought to us by Sam and Joy, Andrea’s nephew and sister. Joy recently rediscovered this recipe and remembers it as one that everyone enjoys. It is full of flavor, sweet and savory, and just perfect for a party, for warming up on a cold day, or would make a perfect football game watching snack!
Enjoy and thank you Andrea!
Apricot Glazed Salami
By Andrea Watman
My father would pick my mother, Pearl, up from work at Zabar’s on Fridays. He would arrive early, she was always late. My father enjoyed the time to catch up with the “guys” at the counter and get a “schtickle” of salami from the Deli Counter – a schtickle is a Yiddish term for a 3 or 4 inch “piece” of kosher salami, cut from one of the dozens of hand-picked salamis hanging from the ceiling. Some fresh and plump, the more cherished salamis were dried to perfection by the skilled hands of the experts. The connoisseur customer knew this was the choice. This snack would hold him until dinner. In honor of the salami, the following recipe brings salami into the main stream as a great football snack or hors d’oeuvre.
Try it! You’ll love it!
