I went backpacking on South Manitou Island this past week, and my trip was made even better by taking some salami and cheeses from the Deli. South Manitou is a small island off the Northwestern side of Michigan, in beautiful Lake Michigan. It’s surrounded by beaches and sand dunes, with lots of trees inbetween. We hiked all over and noshed on a Crespone Salami from Columbus Salami Company- it was the perfect size to carry (not too big) and slice off hunks to eat with cheese: Cabot Clothbound and Piave. Both cheeses held up well and were deliciously filling on our hikes. It’s true that food always tastes better when you’re really hungry, and this was no exception- but I was really glad that I packed such delicious things.
