A very unusual Tuscan Salami. For those who are looking for something outlandish, this is it. An antique way of making good use of all the leftovers (mainly head, skin and tongue) of the pig. The meats are boiled till tender and then chopped. A big casing is used to hold the chopped meat ,the cooking liquid and the various spices (lemon and orange rind, nutmeg, garlic, and of course salt and pepper). The cooking liquid in the meantime becomes jelly and associate all the different components, and it becomes a big salami. When it is chopped into cubes, it can be used to enrich a green salad. Most common of all, it is used to prepare mouth watering sandwiches or just as an appetizer!
