Hints of Fennel
As old Italian folklore goes, a thief walking through a fair in Prato, Tuscany stole a stick of salame from a merchant and hid it in a field of wild fennel. When he returned, it had absorbed the distinct sweet flavor and aroma of the fennel and Finocchiona was born. We make COLUMBUS® Finocchiona Salami with whole cuts of pork never treated with antibiotics, fresh garlic, sherry wine and wild fennel seeds that add a mellow aroma and taste. Slow aged for up to 90 days depending on size. This recipe with a delicate flavor won the Good Food Award in 2013 for Best Charcuterie.
