Question for all you real salamis...

Is the "white stuff" (I am assuming a type of mold) on the outside of the real salamis meant to be eaten (like it is with Brie) or are we expected to "peel" the salami?

It depends on what the casing itself is made from. real instetines = edible, plastic = gross, inedible

the white is often salts or in certain cases MOLD, but either way you can eat it if the casings are the real thing!

FYI the bits of white stuff in the salami are LARD most likely, and that is good, that makes the salami taste so much better.
