Artisan cured meats and health: Why should spend a little ‘more

Just over a year ago, in late October 2015, the WHO statement – the World Health Organization, about consumption of red meat, they sent in an uproar consumers around the world.
Immediately there were the first reactions. In the field of retail and the largest decrease he was seen a drastic drop. American and English in the first place they felt impressed in their breakfast tradition (the famous Inglese breakfast), where are you suffer a long time in butter slices of bacon.

But we Italians, often used to buy artisan sausages, salami, neck, loin directly from the farmer, the manufacturer – we wondered “what c’abbiamo to do with this alarmist?”

A few days after the branch of the press, however, someone – quite rightly, had gone to read in more detail the data of the WHO branched research. Under the spotlight of microscopes in fact it has ended so red meat, but those of poor quality. Those overly processed and transformed by the food industry, from large corporations. Accused went therefore those habits related to poor production and consumption – at times excessive, red meat. The WHO has therefore not banned red meat, but he simply said “be careful what you eat.”

Meats and cold cuts of large retailers: when there is to be careful

The food industry connected to large retailers often has one big goal. Maximize the gain. For this reason, sausages, hams and sausages are often treated with large amounts of chemical additives. Carrageenan, to thicken and stabilize, nitrates and nitrites to balance the flavors and keep longer. Seasonings and flavorings, colorings to restore freshness and shine to meat.
That’s why there is to be more and more attentive to the labels, reading them carefully, learning to decipher the codes if it were needed, even having the audacity to ask the dealer about sausages the ingredient list of a given product. Of course, we must not generalize. Sometimes you also find in GdO artisan products, from small producers, which provide about the natural process.

Artisan cold cuts, a history that goes way back

If we speak of pork, the best way to prepare meat is with salt and natural spices. It is a traditional method developed in the course of thousands of years by various populations at different latitudes of the world. Preservation and seasoning by salting make the delicious sausages and people have worn them for centuries, without any ill effects. The natural processing method of pork requires compliance with the natural aging times. Because, again, human intervention is accompanied by that of nature. The cycle of the seasons, the wind dry strength, “frothiness” fog, refined meat, and help to give the salamis their unique degree of flavor.

Artisanal cold cuts: quality and convenience thanks to online sales

Until yesterday it was said: “artisan food and quality are good but they cost too much.” Today this equation is no longer true, at least not completely. Thanks to the development of e-commerce costs have been reduced significantly. As it has reduced the distance between producer and consumer. Today happens to maybe buy on Amazon a basket of Tuscan handicrafts, containing a good number of local charcuterie tradition specialties, all certified and guaranteed to former level. So maybe Amazon is just the carrier, the great showcase that puts us in contact with the small producer otherwise more difficult to achieve in the network maze. A small artisan producer who always ‘puts his face’. The user has the possibility to contact him directly, to exchange small talk, to organize maybe even to visit him at production sites. And this, finally, is the real virtuous dimension of electronic commerce. A business made up of relationships, of bridges. A transaction that thins the costs linked to the distribution, to maximize the quality and convenience.

How To Cut and Store the Ham

Prosciutto Toscano: cutting and conservation

During the holiday season it happens that we are given away whole sausages or steaks that need to be sliced and stored. Ham for example, that when it is sliced at the time it expresses its maximum flavor and fragrance olfactory level. Buy a whole ham is not to say, therefore, only save on the price, but also point to the maximum of the organoleptic quality level.

How to store the entire Tuscan ham

The whole ham on the bone should not be consumed immediately but it can continue its maturing even inside our homes. It should be kept in the dark, it hung in a cool room and provide fresh air, without any kind of protective film.
When we buy a whole ham, depending on the type of the leg and at the level of the peculiarities of swine nutrition and firmness of the meat, we can opt for two different methods for cutting. Serve a knife-sharpening knife and cutting board of the classic that blocks the bone in the grip, so dear to the Spaniards.

How to cut the ham Tuscan entire knife

It always begins having a large knife and a small one, an appropriate and well-sharpened. It starts by removing the rind, the hardest part outside ham. Then he proceeds by removing the suet and fat, which will be good to set aside to better preserve the ham in the future.
Naturally enough only remove the fat part that obstructs the cutting operation. Every time you want to cut fresh slices it will remove a portion of fat. But you should never exceed with the removal of the fat, leaving the ham uncovered meat I can dry out and the taste to go gradually to fade.
There is the cut Italian, with long slices, and cut to the Spanish, with small Trancetti.
It is always well cut from the inside outward and from the top downwards, so as to try to avoid the risk of accidents in the home. The ideal, to act with maximum safety, would be equipped with special protective gloves made of wire mesh. Approaching the bone, proceeding with the consumption of the ham, it will be more and more frequent the need to use the small knife for stripping.

How to store raw Tuscan ham boned in slices

Convenient and practical, the ham can be packaged in a protective, vacuum atmosphere. Come into our homes must be kept in a cool place, at temperatures between 10 ° C and 18 ° C. Once opened, the ham boned in pieces can be wrapped in a slightly damp cotton cloth and stored in the refrigerator away from the fan – in the lower shelf, in temperatures not too rigid.

As cutting raw Tuscan ham nell’affettatrice

Especially for large Italian hams, such as Parma, San Daniele Prosciutto Crudo Toscano, the choice of the cutting knife can be disastrous for the less experienced.
Use of a slicer, perhaps borrowed from a friend, it may be a strategic choice to enjoy the most of your ham without throwing anything away. Once you have become comfortable we will be able to produce perfect slices, all the same size and the same thickness.
The key thing is to begin to understand how to prepare the ham to be cut. It starts by removing the anchetta thigh and then to gradually remove the rind, moving in a circle. After removing the rind you decide how much fat removed and how much fat to leave. This
choice depends of course on the type of ham, its quality and its grease consistency.
