Carne di suino di razza Casertana

Carne di suino di razza Casertana, or Casertana pig meat, is a traditional and high-quality product from the Campania region in Italy. This specific breed of pig, known as Casertana, is native to the province of Caserta and is highly valued for its tender and flavorful meat. The meat is produced in various towns and communes in Campania, including Caserta, Santa Maria Capua Vetere, and San Prisco.

The Casertana pig is raised in a natural and sustainable way, with a diet based on locally grown grains and forage. The pigs are free-range and have ample space to roam, which contributes to the superior taste and texture of the meat. The production of Casertana pig meat follows strict guidelines and is recognized with the Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) certification, known as PAT in Italy.

One popular recipe that showcases the deliciousness of Casertana pig meat is “Porchetta di Caserta.” This dish involves roasting a whole pig, seasoned with a blend of herbs and spices, until the skin becomes crispy and the meat is tender and juicy. Another Traditional Recipess is “Salsiccia di Caserta,” which is a type of sausage made from Casertana pig meat, seasoned with garlic, fennel seeds, and other spices.
