Bresaola: history and information

Welcome to the section dedicated to Bresaola. In Valtellina, the tradition and culture of this sausage still lives on in the many private cellars where you can find pieces of beef rump hanging to age in the cold of the Dolomites. Bresaola della Valtellina IGP and Buffalo Bresaola are much loved because they are the lean cold cuts par excellence, left to be smelled in brine tanks with juniper berries, cloves and wild bay leaves inside. The classic cold cut from &' summer, fresh, ideal for wrapping fresh cheeses and crispy or freshly scalded vegetables. In fact, it is perfect as an appetizer or as a light main course.

Bresaola is produced in various areas of &' Northern Italy and there are various types that are distinguished from the meat used, which can be beef, horse, buffalo, deer or pork, from the gut or material used for paragraph' bagging and from the procedure used for production. Bresaola della Valtellina IGP and that of Bufalo are undoubtedly the most sought after and famous.

Only in Valtellina is Bresaola IGP produced, but there are many Italian territories where this sausage is interpreted: in the lower Parma area, in the Mantua area, in the south, in Campania, in Benevento, in Sannio, etc. An antique product for a decidedly modern kitchen.


Bresaola: a bit' of

history

The technique of preserving meat in salt has been adopted in Alpine valleys for many centuries: salting and drying were already adopted at the time of &' early Middle Ages. However, there are traces of the first bovine bresaola in the Swiss valleys, those of the canton of Graubünden. It would have arrived in Valtellina only later: this is because the currents d&' air of &' Engandine that descend down the Spluga pass were perfect for &' drying of this type of product.

The name of Bresaola is only l&' the last of a long series: before it was called brazola, brisaola, bresavola. It is thought to derive from "Brisa “, which in dialect indicated a heavily salted bovine gland. “Brasa” was a &' another hypothesis: with this word the local people indicated embers, the primary tool for l&' drying in heated rooms, where fir branches, juniper berries, thyme and bay leaves were burned to give a further aroma. The historical documentation, however, is rather scarce: written evidence dates back only to the 15th century, where purchases of meat and pounds of salt for salting have been recorded in some ledgers

.


How do you make Bresaola?

There are 5 types of cuts of the bovine thigh from which we start to create this extraordinary sausage: the rump, the undercut, the magatello, the subt&' bone and the tip d&' hip, or the most valuable cut. After trimming and removing the external fat (which also includes the tendon parts of the cattle), l& #39 takes place; dry salting operation by spreading sodium chloride and natural flavors on the meat. Traditions and recipes are similar, but there are many variations: depending on these, the cut can also be sprinkled with wine, or with herbs, spices, sugars or ascorbic acid. Through continuous massages, then, salts and aromas are allowed to migrate completely into the meat. Then this is stuffed into a natural gut and placed in special cells where the &' drying takes place. Then the seasoning starts, which can vary from 4 to 8 weeks depending on the size of the product.

and properties

The best feature of this extraordinary sausage, however, is the amount of protein that can reach 48%. A very flexible ingredient, which allows imaginative combinations and the invention of light and refined dishes, as well as appetizers and snacks that are quick and easy

to prepare.
