Mortadella di Prato “Slow Food Presidium”
The typical flavor of ‘Mortadella di Prato’ is given by the contrast between the warm and pungent note of the spices, garlic and sea salt, and the sweet and delicate one of the alkermes. The aroma is penetrating, spicy with a hint of alkermes from the first impact. Its specificity is also reinforced by the choice of cuts of meat used, the traditional and consolidated processing and the particularity of the ingredients, characteristics that make it unique in the Italian gastronomic panorama. Another particular aspect is that cooking is preceded by stewing, which must take place in dedicated premises that ensure progressively decreasing temperatures and increasing humidity, so as to ensure prolonged and gradual drying of the product.
