Package of Salami

Missing that deli meat sandwich? Craving that submarine you used to buy? Perhaps this will help.

Take a look at Mystery Meat Macrophotography by Mike Adams. Mike does macro photography, which basically means really, really, really close up images. In this collection of pictures, he takes you closer than you've ever wanted to get to some processed salami, then some sausages, and finally hot dog wieners. As he goes along, he lists the ingredients for each and tries to point out what the array of colours and textures might be that are appearing within the meat.

To be fair, I think a lot of food would look disgusting this close up, but there's something about meat that's been mashed into a pulp to be formed into a whole new shape - we call 'prepared meats' - that makes your skin crawl.

If you can't bare to look at the images, at least read the blurbs below it. If you've never taken a good look at the list of ingredients on some of these packages, be sure to look over the list he has provided for each product.
