Culatello is obtained by processing the finest part of an adult pig’s thigh (who must weigh 200 kilos at least). The transformation requires an adequate salting and the bagging inside the pig’s bladder. After an aging process of at least 12 months the end result is a flavour that is subtle, delicate and full of aromas, product of the unique climate of Parma’s Bassa with its wintry fogs and sultry summer heat. Its weight varies between 3 and 4,5 kilos.

How to use Ready for use

 

Aged Culatello can be stored for over 6 months in a cool and dry area.

Once cut it can be stored in the fridge for some weeks wrapped in a rag, we suggest covering the cut surface with a clear wrap. Slices must be stored in the fridge and eaten same-day.

How to prepare:

1)     Remove the twine from around the Culatello and wash it under running water

2)     Wrap it in a rag wet with water and white wine

3)     Place it in a basin with water and wine to soften it (We suggest placing the lean and dry part in contact with the basin)

4)     Leave it soaking for at least one night in a cold room

5)     Remove the blister using a knife, trim the fattest parts and remove the diagonal ropes

Wrap it in a dry rag and store it in the fridge
