Salame Toscano is a traditional Italian salami hailing from Tuscany. It's produced with pork's ham, shoulder, lean belly, lard, and spices. The meat is ground and the lard is mixed with salt. The two are combined with spices, then stuffed into natural or synthetic casings.
The salami is dried and well seasoned for at least 4 months before it's sold or consumed. Salame Toscano has an intense flavor of spices and meat, and the cross-section reveals a nice distribution of lean meat and fat. It's recommended to serve it thinly sliced with cheese, wine, and bread.
