Abruzzo Salami

The country has obviously encouraged the raising of pigs and then working with his flesh. So there are hams, sausages (those are must-eat liver sausage and so-called mad) that are often preserved in oil or lard in the Coppa and made the pig’s head. Very special and hard to find now is lAnnoje, tripe sausage with chili. Cured pork is very good also, a kind of loin spread throughout the region. Typical is the mortadella Campotosto although in Abruzzo is better known as “coglioni di mulo”. Tasty hams are smoked Introdacqua (Aq) and LAG (Aq). Among the salami, are those that are valuable in Guilmi (Ch) and Torano (Te). Finally we must remember the Ventricina, which is typical of the provinces of Teramo and Chieti. Ventricina (pork belly meat) is good spread on bruschetta.

The name “mortadella” is traced back to Roman times. According to some sources, it derives from “Mortarium” (mortar), a tool used to crush the pork. The production of mortadella, however, can be located in an area of Roman influence, which extends from Emilia Romagna to Lazio. Mortadella is in fact the most famous cooked Bolognese tradition sausage, with historical origins dating back to the sixteenth century. In more recent times the area of the original production has spread to neighboring areas.
