The Instacart guide to capocollo products
Capocollo is an Italian staple in many households. It is a ham produced from the muscle that runs from the top of the neck through the shoulder and into the rib cage on a pig. It is rubbed with a variety of spices and seasonings. Once seasoned, the meat will be cured mildly using sugar, sweet and hot peppers, and a lot of salt. Once the curing process is complete, the meat is often put into a casing and dried.
Capocollo can be used in many preparations. It can be served:
- As a main dish.
- On a sandwich.
- As an appetizer.
- With rice.
- With pasta.
- In a salad.
It tastes good, both hot and cold, which allows it to be worked into many preparations.
Capocollo pairs well with a variety of flavors, including:
- Full-bodied red wines.
The meat has a delicate yet spicy flavor which often leaves a smoky after taste. It is very tender due to the high amount of fat and tends to melt in your mouth when you consume it. Due to its strong flavor, it is often sliced very thin as a little will go a long way.
Capocollo is made in a number of regions in Italy, with each adding its unique seasonings and processing. Argentina and the French island of Corsica are also known to produce their own versions.
