Make simple syrup equal parts sugar and water. Peel rind of orange and
lemon thin, let them boil in the simple syrup for 15 minutes, then put on
rack in oven at 350? for few minutes to dry out.

Soak the raisins in warm water 'til needed.

Break up the chocolate & place in top of double boiler with butter and
heat until melted, add sugar, almonds, bisquit crumbs, drained raisins and
candied peel and mix well.

Remove from from heat and stir in the egg yolks and let mixture cool almost
completely. While still a little warm, form mixture into a rough salami
shape with hands, place on saran wrap, seal and refrigerate for several
hours. Slice thin and serve.

Note: Mixture is crumbly. Make 4 rough balls and then combine to make one
large salami. Form into rough shape, then place tightly in saran wrap,
being careful to wrap completely, twist the ends and fold under and then
roll the salami until it compacts and becomes firm. Place in refrigerator
and chill until firm, couple of hours or overnight.
