More on Zampone Fresco Bio from Salumificio Pedrazzoli’s Linea Primavera organic range:
Zampone is a particular deli meat specialty made with select cuts of pork meat and rind, seasoned with fine spices. The pork rind is ground separately, whilst the other parts of the pig are processed in a meat grinder, before being transferred to a mixer with added salt, wine and various spices such as pepper, nutmeg, cinnamon and cloves.The mixture is then stuffed into a pig’s hind trotter, which is cleaned, with the fat removed and then tied at the top. One famous feature of this specialty is the presence of the pigs toes on the finished product.
RECOMMENDED PAIRINGS: Zampone is a specialty with a distinctive, intense and spicy flavour; it is consumed all over Italy, particularly during the winter months. It is also a typical component of the traditional Italian New Year’s feast, when it is eaten with lentils. Well-known accompaniments include other types of pulses, such as bean stew and lentils. During the Renaissance, it was even served with zabaione (a liquor-flavoured Italian custard). These days it is eaten with finely mashed potatoes or salted spinach with a little Terra di Bari olive oil and cheese. As for drinks, it goes perfectly with sparkling red wines like Lambrusco, a sweet, naturally fermented wine which is vivacious and fruity and lingers on the palate. Formats available: 1000 g approx. – 900 g – fresh or pre-cooked, heat treated in an autoclave at a minimum temperature of 115°C, wrapped in yellow paper like it used to be by traditional deli meat butchers.
