Keep Basecamp salamis in the fridge leaving the cut end open.  It can be wrapped in paper to prevent it being spoiled by moisture in the fridge.  If the salami becomes ‘sticky’ or develops a mold, wipe it off and re-dry. The natural casing is porous allowing the salami to lose moisture and naturally age.

When you have had a quantity of salamis made, we recommend freezing the extras.  To freeze, wrap in clingfilm. When defrosting, unwrap the salami and hang in the kitchen for 24 hours to dry.

Basecamp Salamis can also be air-dried.  Hang a salami in a well aerated dry place, not a pantry and preferably the kitchen where you can see it.  The low fat content of Basecamp salamis means the salami has a shorter drying time.

Smoked Sausage and Biersticks are vacuum packed and can be frozen. (if moisture occurs in the bag, the product can be taken out and air-dried.)

Basecamp is listed as a Homekill/Recreational Catch Service Provider with MAF. The products we manufacture for you are not for re-sale and are for you, your fellow hunters and your family’s consumption only.
