The Nebrodi Black Pig
But for dedicated pork lovers the Nebrodi mountains hold a trump card: they are home to an indigenous black-skinned pig called the suino nero. Once spurned by butchers because of its small size and thick coating of fat, this free-roaming pig is now enjoying a comeback. The Black pig of Nebrodi is a precious patrimony for its high quality meat both for local economy and for gastronomic pleasure. The meat is consumed fresh or transformed into salami, ham and bacon.
Produced only with meat from the prized Nebrodi black pig and flavored with whole pistachios, Nebrodi Black Pig Mortadella is a quality artisanal product. The slow oven cooking for up to 24 hours at a constant temperature gives the black pig mortadella an irresistible fragrance and taste.
