Speck Alto Adige
by Recla. Product of Italy.
SPECK made by Recla, Srl (Alto Adige, Italy) – Speck is a distinctively juniper-flavored ham originally from Tyrol, a historical region that since 1918 partially lies in Austria and partially in Italy. Recla is one of the premium producers on the Italian side. Freshly cut meat must immediately be rubbed with the seasoning. The mix of spices is a well kept family secret but the basic composition is a mix of rock salt, sea salt and pickling salt, first class pepper, juniper berries, various herbs and a hint of allspice. The right amount of seasoning is crucial. Two weeks of dry curing are the first stage in preserving the meat. After one week the hams are turned around to make sure that both sides are cured evenly and then left to rest for a second week. The meat is then lightly smoked over beechwood chips for the typical flavour. The Alto Adige is a sunny region in the south of the Alps and Recla likes to give their Speck a slightly southern, even Mediterranean touch—aromatic yet mild in flavor.

This place never disappoints. I discovered it while visiting Paso Robles and now it’s my go to place for charcuterie board meats and cheeses.
