Cacciatore is a small, aged salami that weighs about 210 - 250 gm. Choose chilli, fennel or plain.
Cured for us by Montecatini Specialty Smallgoods and made with pastured pork, black pepper, sea salt and red wine. Our salami is legally ready to sell when we receive it back from Montecatini but we hang it for at least another six weeks to ensure a firm texture and superior, mature flavour. This is six weeks more aged than most available salami.
This product is fresh, not frozen.
We buy whole bodies of a range of different sized pigs on a rotating basis from a number of farms - from big baconers through to suckling pigs. Most available cuts come from porker pigs which are about 50-65 kg that are 5-7 months old. The pork we source is:
- packed with the farm and breed clearly labelled;
- hormone and antibiotic-free;
- entirely free ranging on chemical-free pasture;
- a mix of breeds including Berkshire, Landrace, Large White, English Large Black, Duroc, Wessex Saddleback and Tamworth;
- from NSW farms.
