The Nebrodi Black Pig
is an autochthonous Sicilian breed that has always been devoted to free range breeding, as well as a Slow Food
Presidium, with autonomous feeding without almost never the need for food integration by the farmer.
Until a few years ago it was a species in gradual decline in favor of more common pigs, easier to breed and endowed with an higher quantitative yield, but today, however, breeders, producers and processors of Nero dei Nebrodi are increasing.
The Prosciutto di Suino Nero dei Nebrodi
(Black Nebrodi Pork Ham
) in the photo is an excellent example of traditional pork butchery product, made by Ponte due Archi
, a very high quality product with an intense flavour and particularly enveloping fat and delicate taste.
