First Batch of Filetto’ Cured Pork

salumiBased on their training in Italy, here is a photo of the first experimental batch of Filetto’ cured pork tenderloin.

For the record this is technically a salumi, a dried whole muscle.  After traveling to Italy, the Coles’ were awestruck by the different kinds of cured meats they saw in the markets.  There’s no grinding and stuffing, in fact the process for curing whole muscles is a new project for these expert sausage makers.

So, the experiment includes salting the meat, curing it for a period of time, rinsing off the cure and then hanging it to age and dry in a meat curing refrigerator. Stay tuned!
