Tuscan raw ham
The processing of Tuscan raw ham dates back to the Middle Ages. Already in the 9th century, on winter days, on the hills surrounding Arezzo, Siena and Grosseto, peasant families used to participate in a ceremony, almost a sacred rite: the killing of the pig.
It was a day of celebration, which was celebrated with great feasts, songs and dances and which provided meat to be preserved, in the form of cured meats, for an entire year, allowing families to overcome the harsh winters.
However, it was around the 15th century, under the Medici, that the production of ham was regulated in all its phases, with rules still applied today which can well be said to be a sort of ante litteram specification.
Also in the 15th century, the Officials of Grascia, the Florentine magisterium responsible for overseeing the application of the "right price", were tasked with ensuring compliance with production regulations.
This collection of Tuscan raw hams is the best of the Tuscan delicatessen. You can breathe and touch the quality.
