If you like your meats cured, fermented, and dried, then odds are, the Salami of the Month Club ($140-$385) was made for you. This is some of the best salami you can find — it's hand butchered from fresh Northwest pork to 100% lean, and only then is hand-cut fatback added for marbling. All the ingredients, including garlic and spices, are freshly chopped and ground in-house, so you know you're getting the best stuff possible. Depending on what you order, you can get one, two, or three salamis delivered to your doorstep each month, selected from an available 12 varieties. Included with each order are detailed tasting notes, meant to give you guidance on the best way to enjoy each one.
Step into the challenging, yet rewarding, culinary world of home charcuterie with these Hi Mountain Sausage Making Kits ($20 and up). Perfect for the novice who has always wanted to make sausage in his kitchen, or for the experienced home cook who's looking for something a little bit different, these kits include everything you need except for the meat. With seasonings and casings for up to 30 pounds of sausage, these kits are available in a wide range of flavor options, including: german sausage, bratwurst, polish sausage, jalapeño summer sausage, and more. All that's left for you to do is head down to the butcher, pick up a bunch of meat, and start stuffing.
Of course, popcorn is a delicious snack, whether you're deep into a marathon Netflix session, or postponing boredom at work — but there's no denying that it's full of weird chemicals that have no business in your food. But Quinn Popcorn ($15) is a different kind of microwavable popcorn. The bag is made of nothing but paper (it contains none of the usual chemical coatings), the corn is organic, and the oil and seasonings are all natural, and full of omega-3s. Flavors include parmesan and rosemary, Vermont maple and sea salt, butter and sea salt, hickory smoked cheddar, olive oil and herbs, and lemon and sea salt. Each order comes with three boxes, and two bags in each box.
Most days it's not really appropriate to start out with a Bloody Mary or Irish Coffee — so when you have a taste for the hard stuff, smear on some Puff's Preserves Boozy Jam ($TBA). While all the alcohol cooks off during the preparation process, the flavors of beer, whiskey, champagne, bourbon and wine remain. Seasonal recipes include apple beer chamomile, rhubarb vodka hibiscus, raspberry whiskey chipotle, and blackberry bourbon lavender. Each small batch is made with fresh, local, and in-season ingredients, as well as Colorado distilled or brewed booze.
