Description

Cacciatorino Ferrarino 

Salami is a type of preserved sausage consisting of fermented and air-dried meat, typically pork. According to historic accounts, salami was a popular food staple among southern, eastern, and central European common folk due to its longevity and storability. Stored at room temperature for up to 40 days, Salami, once cut, can supplement a potentially meager or inconsistent supply of fresh meat.

 

Salami: Origin of The Name

The word Salami originates from the word sale ("salt"), with a termination (-ame) which, in Italian, indicates a collective noun. Thus, it originally meant "all kinds of salted (meats)". The Italian tradition of cured and preserved meats includes several forms. And, eventually, the word "salame" soon specifically meant only the most popular kind. The kind that is salted and spiced meat, ground and injected into an elongated, thin casing, usually cleaned animal intestine, then left to undergo natural curing and drying for days, months, or even, years.

 

Historical Background

The process of fermentation has been around for thousands of years. — It is the method of allowing advantageous or benign organisms to thrive in food to counter harmful or toxic ones from growing. This fact is evident in the presence of various types of sausages found globally. Worldwide, there exist many distinctive versions of sausage, each having their own cultural and flavor profiles. Additionally, each sausage variant has its own and specific type of main seasonings and salt content, making each flavor and texture unique. 

 

Types of Salami

This vast array of fermented sausages, especially in terms of salami, shows its ubiquitous but exclusive nature. For example, due to immigration to North America, European settlers brought many traditions, including fermented meats such as pepperoni.

Similar types of sausages are found in the Middle East, where various meats such as beef, lamb, and mutton are used; or in China, where lap Cheong (translated as "waxed intestines") are usually pork.

What Makes Ferrarini Salami Special?

Ferrarini's Italian Salami is made with the finest ground pork meat (from carefully selected pigs) and produced following traditional techniques and recipes from Parma, a region rich in culinary traditions and especially the art of salumi. Expertly seasoned with a secret mix of herbs and spices, each salami is stuffed into its casing and then tied by hand, one by one – as they always have been.

In the production of our cured meats, we use both animals born, reared and slaughtered in Italy and animals born, reared and slaughtered in other EU countries. The reason we use meat from other countries is partially the fact that Italy is not self-sufficient in terms of its pork production (we import around 40% of our pork), and more importantly, the fact that almost all pork hind legs from pigs born, reared and slaughtered in Italy are used for the production of PDO cured hams (Parma, San Daniele, etc). In the production of non-PDO cured meats, the source of the meat does not affect the quality or healthiness of the product.

 

How To Enjoy Ferrarini Salami?

Before slicing the meat, it is advisable to peel off the casing from the part you would like to cut. Cutting Ferrarini Salami carefully by hand is advised. It is best done with a long-bladed knife that has been well sharpened. Slices should be cut diagonally with a decisive, but delicate cut.

For an appetizer, you could eat  Ferrarini salami with some Parmigiano Reggiano PDO Parmesan cheese and small pieces of focaccia. Salami is ideal as a starter served with a good Ferrarini Lambrusco. Their flavor is sure to surprise even the most demanding connoisseurs.
