Salam d'la duja is a pork salami preserved in lard.
The word "duja" means in the local dialect "vase, pot, jar". As a matter of fact, the name of the product derives from the terracotta jar used to preserve the salami in lard. The unusual preservation method of salam d'la duja has developed in the very wet plains of eastern Piemonte, where drying meat was not possible because of the elevated humidity in the air and the non-adequate climatic conditions that favored the growth of molds.
The ingredients to prepare salam d'la duja are: pork cuts both lean and fat (shoulders, bacon, lard, leg, culatello, coppa, etc.), salt, pepper, garlic, spices, and wine (generally red). The result is a bit softer than classical salami. When sliced, you can clearly distinguish the dark red lean part and the white fat part.
Salam d'la duja can be eaten raw, cut into rather thick slices, paired with some bread. Traditionally, it is one of the main ingredients of paniscia, the characteristic risotto of the areas of Vercelli and Novara.
This product is the traditional salam d'la duja but the external layer of lard has been removed after the maturation and the salami has been wrapped in an air tight packaging.
