If I had to choose one type of store-bought meat that makes me cringe more than any other, it’s packaged deli sandwich meat. It’s liberally processed and often slimy with preservatives…because it has to be. As a general rule, the more a meat is handled after coming off an animal, the more things that need to be done to make it safe. Plus, Carl Buddig and his cohorts know it needs to have a shelf life. It is what it is and it won’t kill you (probably). But if you’re like me and you want to avoid eating the stuff, it’s time to consider making your own. Luckily, it’s pretty easy.
