Prisuttu is a speciality of the Corsican deli meats. To be consumed in moderation.

The Prisuttu, a king piece!

The prisuttu is made according to a very specific process. The ham after being drained of its blood, the nerves and excess fatty parts are removed. Then the ham is salted, slightly smoked and matured in a cellar for a period of 12 to 24 months.  During this transformation phase, the Corsican prisuttu is checked on a regular basis to ensure its quality throughout the refining process.

What to know: You get only two prisutti per pig, so it is very important to take care of its manufacture.

But how to taste The Prisuttu?

The prisuttu is a raw ham that will be appreciated very well alone during an aperitif or an appetizer with a glass of the "Orenga de Gaffory" estate. If you opt for a plate of deli meats, it will go perfectly with pickles, coppa and lonzu.
Do not hesitate to use it for your sandwiches (at home, during your hikes ...), in this case it is advisable to cut rather thick slices. The prisuttu becomes very dry, no problem, you can use it to make stews. (You can find the recipe below). Finally if you have a whole Corsican ham and it arrives on the end, use the bone to give your tomato sauce a taste. An unrivalled fragrance.

Nice idea: In the summer when it is very hot, I suggest you serve it with a very fresh Corsican rosé wine.

Conservation of Prisuttu?

I advise you to store your Corsican ham in a cool, dry and airy place in order to keep it in the best conditions.
