SO WHAT IS SALAMI BASICALLY MADE OF?
It all starts with pork meat which is minced alongside a certain amount of pork fat of the finest quality. Because yes, believe it or not, there is such a thing as high-quality fat. This fine white fat blends in with the salami and should stick to it like glue when sliced.
Seasoning includes salt, fennel, garlic, mace, black pepper, and even wine and cinnamon.You mix all of them together, giving the salami the shape of a sausage, you encase it and let it age in dark and cool cellars.
HOW DO YOU PREPARE SALAMI?
Now I´m going to explain in particular why I´m in love with this organic farm in Denmark.
I´m working as a butcher at Bæst in Copenhagen for one year now and every week we have 1 or 2 pig to work with.
Directly is coming by the honer of the farm called “hindsholmgrisen” means Hindsholm is a penisula of the northeastern of Fyn and grisen means pig.
HOW DO THEY FEED PIGS?
HindsholmPork pigs are fed barley, rye, oats, peas, lupins and fava beans – never soya. They always have access to green feed. The pigs find much of their feed on their own, eating grass, roots, worms, snails, beetles and a lot more. They’re fed exclusively with 100% traceable organic feed, they can always point to the fields where their feed comes from. During the colder months they also fed them with seaweed.
Natural feed and lots of exercise means that their pigs grow very slowly. It takes minimum a year an half to be finished for slaughter, which is twice as long as normal!!!!
HindsholmPork has particularly beautiful and uniform fat marbling, with a good balance between meat and fat. The fat is extremely tasty, velvety and pliable. They can only get this kind of result by raising the pigs in a natural way.
HindsholmPork cultivate their own feed.
They look after the pigs themselves.
They butcher the pigs themselves and they make all of the products they sell.
And you know how many they are?
It is a lovely couple, Poul and Carla Lang Nielsen and two butcher.
I experienced that are focused on products of the highest quality and they take this very seriously. Therefore they go a few steps beyond the minimum requirements of organic certification so the product will be the best of it’s kind.
Please see attached some picture of that wonderful and relaxed day my girlfriend and I had.
