Speck Alto Adige - approx. wt. 1.6 lb

(Recla) - 

Speck is a type of dry cured ham that is lightly smoked and seasoned. Produced in Italy in the mountainous region where Austria, Switzerland and Italy come together, Recla is one of the reputable producers with roots of producing this specialty since 1919. Freshly cut meat must be immediately rubbed with seasonings and spices consisting of rock salt, sea salt, pickling salt, pepper, juniper berries and various herbs that the family keeps a secret. It is then slowly dry cured using the cool mountain air of the Alto Adige province and then after 2 weeks of air drying, the meat is then lightly cold-smoked over beech wood chips to give a unique but delicate smoked flavor. The pieces of Speck are now stacked carefully for maturing in aging cellars, where the product can lose up to 40% of its weights in the slow drying process. The process is crucial for the ham to become truly tender.

Simply slice it and serve with crunchy bread, cheese, and roasted vegetables.

"This is a 5 star product! Quality is very good and much appreciated in Italy. Great when sliced thin and eaten with Italian grissinis; even better when sliced thicker, cut in small pieces and eaten with pieces of ciabatta bread as they do in Trentino Alto Adige, the Italian region where the speck comes from. Great as ""Tapa"" with friends."
