MATURED FOR 6 MONTHS
Raw ham in the best Styrian tradition.
To achieve the tenderness of Styrian bacon, only selected pieces of ham are used. The pieces are first salted dry and then air-dried. After four months of maturing, the ham has lost approx. 40 % of its original weight and still has a subsequent maturing period of approx. two months. It is now a ham of the highest quality and an unforgettable taste experience.
Veritable bacon connoisseurs are in agreement that particularly the neck is the basis for a hearty and succulent bacon speciality. After the traditional blend of seasonings has taken effect, the osso collo is smoked cold. This is followed by maturing at controlled temperature and humidity. The maturing period is 4 months. Osso collo tastes best when it is finely cut and served with hearty bread and dry white wine.
THE RUSTIC ONE AMONG BACON TYPES
The "Rohhamburger" is produced from selected, lean pieces of bacon. The raw produce is cut to a certain specification so that a rectangular form is guaranteed. Dry curing with the finest of seasonings in interaction with the smoking process and a maturing period of more than 4 weeks makes this product appear unique in its characteristics.
