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.
