Mortadella hails from Bologna, Italy, and it is thanks to its hometown that it is popularly known in America as “baloney”. But comparing Mortadella and the rubbery pink baloney we’re used to seeing at the supermarket is, forgive us, baloney! Our Mortadella by Creminelli is made following Italian charcuterie methods and artisan traditions, hand-tied in natural casing.
Mortadella is soft, pale pink and smooth, a departure from the usual dried, deep red salami we’re used to. Creminelli’s version is softer and lighter, thanks in part to the partial emulsification, but also thanks to the rich, flavorful pork that they use.
It’s full of a creamy, porky flavor that’s more like ham, which is compliments to the super fine grinding the pork goes through. There is a good proportion of buttery, succulent fat cubes added back, studded through the meat. Creminelli seasons their Mortadella with garlic and pepper, for a zesty taste that is well balanced with the smoothness of the pork.
Slice it super (we’re talking whisper thin here) thinly and savor in a sandwich paired with Provolone cheese, toss in some olives and red peppers for a New Orleans muffuletta, or serve as part of an antipasto platter with other meats and cheeses. You can also cube and add to a salad for a boost of hammy flavor.
