Mortadella is a large Italian pork sausage that originates from the city of Bologna in Northern Italy. Instantly recognisable with its bright pink interior dotted with white fat spots. It is made using a mixture of the best pork, finely ground pork rind and pork lardens.
It is unique as it is cooked and not cured like many other cold Italian meats. The raw pork is first ground into a smooth paste to which the fat cubes are added along with carefully selected blend of spices. This mixture is then fed into a sausage casing and cooked very slowly at a low temperature. So that the fat cubes remain tender without melting during the baking process. It is this that gives Mortadella its delicate sweet pork flavour.
Many Italians serve this delicious pork sausage, either cubed or sliced, as part of a charcuterie board appetizer. It is also makes the best sandwiches. Layer Mortadella on some fresh Italian bread along with Mozzarella drizzled with Basil Pesto. Could a sandwich get any better!
You can also use Mortadella as a filling for ravioli or thinly sliced and scattered over a tasty pasta salad.
So if you are after the authentic taste and flavours of Italy, then this Mortadella is definitely the perfect choice for you.
