Mangalitza Dry Cure Gammon 3Kg: Two Gold Stars in the Great Taste Awards
Great news—not one but two Gold Stars awarded in the Great Taste Awards for this delicious new dry-cure Mangalitza gammon made by our Rick Stein ‘Food Heroes’ Rachel and Jeannie at Alternative Meats. Using a traditional dry cure, they have taken the fabulously marbled Mangalitza Pork legs and created one of the best gammons we—and the judges at the Great Taste Awards, and the Michelin-Star chefs now ordering them—have ever tasted.
The Mangalitza pig breed originates in Hungary and genetically it has a high proportion of wild boar (as well as a characteristically curly coat). Therefore its taste is deeper and meatier than more conventional breeds, and it has superb fat marbling. Rachel and Jeannie’s Mangalitza dry-cured gammon is juicy, tender and filled with rich pork flavours which are simply more delicious than others. It retains that succulence due to the amazing intra-muscular marbling, and of course the fat covering is delicious—no wonder the Great Taste judges and chefs love it.
Cook using the traditional gammon method: boil, score the fat into diamonds, stud with cloves, then glaze to taste—above, it’s with wholegrain mustard and honey—then bake to a beautiful golden brown. It looks impressive as the centrepiece at a dinner, lunch or party, and tastes marvellous both hot and cold.
