The Truffled Salchichón by Casa Riera Ordeix adds truffles to the traditional method.
Like the Vic Salchichón by Casa Riera Ordeix, the Truffled Salchichón is made in Vic (Plaça dels Màrtirs, 14). The process also begins on the ground floor, where the best parts of the gilt are chosen for grinding.
The desired meat is chosen, ground and mixed with sea salt and black pepper. But this time we also add black winter truffles from La Garrotxa.
Once the meat has been well mixed with the spices, we let it stand for at least 48 hours before stuffing it into natural casings. Then comes the dry curing process, one of the distinguishing traits of our firm.
During the dry curing process, which is completely natural and can last anything between three and six months, the temperature and humidity are controlled manually by opening and closing windows.
Two or three times throughout the process, the Truffled Salchichón by Casa Riera Ordeix is removed, brushed and hung again.
The black truffle: a winter jewel.
Among other places, it can be found in Osona, La Garrotxa, northern Tarragona and the pre-Pyrenees. It is irregularly shaped and between two and eight centimetres long. It has a reddish black hue streaked with thin white veins, and its perfume is intense and delicate at a time.
The black winter truffle (tuber melanosporum) adds an extraordinary touch of flavour to our Truffled Salchichón that will delight even the most demanding palates.
