Lardo di Colonnata, IGP, 200g

Sold out

The famous cured lard from Colonnata, in Tuscany. The traditional recipe dates back to Roman times and the meat is aged in basins made from the highly-prized Carrara marble that is mined in the area. The insides of these basins are rubbed with garlic, and the meat is then aged for a minimum of 6 months with salt, black pepper, rosemary and garlic. Unlike British lard, Lardo di Colonnata is considered a delicacy, and it best enjoyed sliced very thinly with focaccia, crostini or casereccio bread, but can also be used in recipes such as roast potatoes when it is added after cooking, making it melt and gently glaze the outside of the potato.
