Capocollo now ready! Spicy/Hot and Sweet/Mild

Two flavors to choose from! Spicy/Hot and Sweet/Mild

Definition: An Italian ham that is prepared by mixing meat from pork necks (capo or head) and shoulders (collo) with seasonings. It is mildly cured and seasoned with hot or sweet peppers, as well as salt and sugar. It is stuffed into a natural casing and air-dried. Capocollo can be prepared hot or cold and served as a snack, an appetizer, or as a main dish. When it is made into a hard dry sausage it is known  as Coppa and is very similar to prosciutto.
