This Italian cold cut has been produced since ancient times – the 1st century! The recipe originates in the region near Rome, and it consists of finely ground pork (the first part of the name, “mortar” derives from the mortar that was used for grinding) seasoned with spices and herbs, stuffed into a casing, then cooked in dry hot air ovens (which doesn’t add moisture). Presented in round light pink slices, the flavor is mild, delicate, and fragrant with a soft, silky texture.
Ferrarini produces their coveted Mortadella using a secret recipe which includes cubes of pork fat taken from the neck of the hog for extra fatty sweetness, plus meaty pistachios for additional flavor and crunch. We present it in practical slices, so you can just open and serve in antipasto or sandwiches.
Ferrarini makes their gluten-free, lactose-free mortadella with select meats. They’ve been expertly producing high quality Italian charcuterie and specialty means since the mid-1950s, respecting classic techniques and ancient recipes.
