Capocollo made by The Cure Artisanal Charcuterie In Saskatoon

Oh capocollo, the sight of your marbling alone is enough to set our mouths watering! This cured meat is made from pork using meat from the back of the neck, which is where its name comes from: capo (“head”) and collo (“neck”). Once it has been seasoned and prepared, it is stuffed into a natural casing and left to cure. It is similar to prosciutto in texture, beautifully silky, and has a rich mouthfeel.

We love it as part of our muffulettas, but it makes a great sandwich meat in general – and don’t forget pizza!

Here’s a great idea from the Food Network: Split a loaf of French bread and brush with pesto. Top with capicola, shredded mozzarella and grated Parmesan. Broil until the cheese melts.
