Lard from Camaiore is a typical local salami. Much appreciated by food lovers, it has a white colour with red veins and is made from the fatty part of the pig’s back. Pieces are covered by a rich layer of salt and pepper, garlic and rosemary, and are placed on marble surfaces at a slight incline, where they mature for a rather short period, after which the lard is ready to be sold.
It can be cut into thin slices, paired with toasted or fresh bread and used as a condiment for soups and dishes. As the typical Tuscan appetizer, it is often served with other salamis, such as biroldo,prosciutto Toscano DOP, etc.
