Artisan Tuscan Porchetta Cooked with Wood
The Porchetta Toscana Artigianale is a classic with an ancient tradition.
Not for nothing did the ancient Romans say that the pig was made for the banquet table.
A recipe from the cookbook from two thousand years ago, attributed to the gourmet Apicius:
speaks of a whole tender pig, bones deprived, seasoned with wild herbs and slowly roasted over a wood fire.
Today the traditional flavor is preserved but only the pork shoulder is used, with the addition of steam to seal the seasonings.
The Porchetta Toscana Artigianale is traditionally produced by a young pig:
seasoned with aromatic herbs, steamed, lightly smoked, roasted in a wood oven, without preserves.
The cooking duration varies from 9 to 12 hours, and it is this slow cooking that keeps the crust crisp and the inside soft and tasty.
This Tuscan Artisan specialty is made with the best Italian pork and does not contain artificial preservatives.

History and Consumption
Baked porchetta boasts a millenary tradition, presumably dating back to pre-Romanesque times and to the population of the Latins.
In fact, not only is Ariccia attributed the custom of offering pork as a sacrifice to the gods, but it is also believed that, thanks to the presence of the Roman nobility -
who used to move to Ariccia for the summer season or to organize hunting trips -
it has been possible to develop that craftsmanship in preparing the porchetta that continues to be handed down in the Ariccine families from father to son.
The first "Sagra della Porchetta di Ariccia" was organized in 1950.
Since then, every year in Ariccia this evocative and characteristic event takes place where the product is offered on festively decorated stalls by vendors dressed in traditional clothes.
Evidence of this is the Extract from the Register of acts of the Municipal Council:
of 14 September 1962, relating to the contribution for the feast of the Patron Saint Apollonia and the Sagra della Porchetta, found in the archives of the Municipality of Ariccia.
To best enjoy the Tuscan home-made Porchetta from Tuscan delicatessen it is recommended to consume it fresh, just purchased.
Otherwise it is important to place it in the refrigerator at a temperature between 2 and 6 ° C.
In the Tuscan tradition it is usually served as an aperitif in cubes or as a main course, cut into slices and served cold.
It is also suitable to be consumed between meals, for example as a filling for a tasty sandwich
