Salsiccia Casereccia


Salsiccia Casereccia is a high-quality sausage typical of Romagna made from lean pork coming exclusively from Italian pigs. The ingredients are pork, salt, dextrose, spices and herbs. Sodium ascorbate is used to prevent oxidation while potassium nitrate and sodium nitrite are used as preservatives. It does not contain milk, caseinates and/or wheat derivatives.


Preparation techniques:
It is made from the most tender part (the oyster piece) and tastiest one (lardo) of pork. After selecting the raw ingredients, wash carefully the muscles and the fatty parts. Remove the largest connective tissues and the soft fatty parts. The selected meats are ground in a mincer to achieve a rather fine texture. They are then mixed in atmospheric pressure machines. Salsiccia casereccia is stuffed into a pork casing and tied up with string by hand. The product is dried at a temperature ranging from 12° and 14°C to quickly dehydrate the surface in the early days of treatment. It is finally cured for 3 weeks in stores where air circulation is ensured at a temperature varying from 12° to 13°C.
