The history of raw ham

THE TRADITION 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 binges, songs and dances and which provided meat to be preserved, in the form of meats, for a whole year, allowing families to overcome the harsh winters. However, it was around the fifteenth century, under the Medici, that the production of ham was regulated in all its phases, with rules still applied today which may well be called a sort of disciplinary ante litteram. Also in the 15th century, the Officers of Grascia, a Florentine magisterium in charge of supervising the application of the "right price", were instructed to monitor compliance with the production standards.
