Unique mangalitza salami full of character, with the tantalising natural sweetness of the cranberries providing a mouth-watering counterpoint to the richly flavoured meat. This artisan charcuterie is made in small-batches with 80% fresh mangalitza pork and 20% grey cattle beef, and the combination of these two ancient Hungarian breeds provides a memorable and intense experience.
The free-range salami is high in Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids, as well as a range of anti-oxidants, minerals and vitamins while low in cholesterol, making it a healthy choice with heart-protective properties.
Delicious on its own, in sandwiches, as a pizza topping or sliced into risottos and pasta sauces. It makes the perfect center-piece for charcuterie boards, going especially well with hard cheese including Cheddar, Parmesan or Gouda.
Received 1* at the 2020 Great Taste Award.
Comments from the Great Taste Judges:
"A rich dark, slightly soft salami with a strong smoky aroma. A good balance of meat to fat and a super mouthfeel and texture. Beautifully tender and juicy - a good balance of the pork/ salami and cranberries to create this. This is a good marriage of flavours rather than an addition for the sake of it."
