Fresh Salami - Salama da Sugo from Ferrara
During Christmas Emilian fresh salami become widely popular in Italy. But I admit it shamelessly: I'd eat them even in August!
And in particular I'd eat everyday the salami depicted in the first image of this series of photos: the Salama da Sugo from Ferrara. If any of you never tried it, I warn you, it is addictive as a drug and once you enter this trip you couldn't live without it anymore.
It is prepared by grinding various parts of the pig: neck, jowl, lean meat resulting from trimming ham and shoulder, a small percentage of tongue and liver; then flavored salt, pepper and nutmeg. When the dough is ready to be sacked robust red wine is added which, during the aging process, gives the sausage its characteristic flavor.
