Parmacotto Cotechino - Cooked Pork Sausage DOP Modena 17.6 oz
Originally from Modena, cotechino holds a special place in the hearts, and stomachs, of most Italians due to the persisting belief that if eaten together with lentils as the clock strikes midnight on New Years Eve, you will be the recipient of good luck for the year to come. It name comes from the cotica, or pork rind, which is a major component of this fresh pork sausage. To make cotechino, rind taken from the jowl and throat area of the pig is ground together with fat and striated muscle meat. The ground pork is then seasoned with salt, pepper, cloves and nutmeg, and stuffed into a casing. Our skillfully made Cotechino di Modena IGP is precooked so that the meat is guaranteed to be tender and sweet. The sausage should be heated before serving, and cut into thick slices.
