How should I store the salame I purchase from Boudin, and why does it appear white on the outside?

We sell only the traditional Italian Dry salame, which exhibits a beneficial mold growth on the outside. This growth is essential to its flavor and longevity. Salame should be refrigerated once you receive it. The salame is cured, so the longer the salame is stored, the more moisture it will lose and harder the salame will become.
