Local Produce: Norcineria
Tradition has it that after the destruction to Jerusalem a number of Jews arrived in the Valnerina area bringing with them their expert knowledge on how to cure pork, given that for religious reasons they were forbidden to eat the animal and therefore needed to preserve it for trade.
Since then, salting
of ham, capocollo and sausages has become a speciality
of the inhabitants of Norcian hence the name ”norcineria”
that is used for these goods throughout Italy.
As well as an excellen prosciutto crudo
, Norcia still produces capocollo
. The so-called insaccati
, meaning all cured meat that uses the animal's intestine as an exterior cover, such as salame and sausages, include salami ciauscoli
, also made from boar meat
