Sausage typical of the Bisenzio Valley

Mortadella of Prato PGI is a sausage typical of the Valle del Bisenzio. Produced in ancient times with the less noble parts of the pig, is closely linked to the Tuscan tradition. In the 1950s the Mortadella was a product that is always present on the boards of Prato because of its abundant and simple production. Prepared by families ahead of winter stocks got today the protected geographical indication.

Mortadella is characterized by a persistent taste due to the spices and the addition of Alkermes Liqueur into the dough before the "stewing", Mortadella of Prato IGP, as boiled sausage leaves safe from problems related to cooking of meats. The return to tradition that in recent years there has been in the area, allowed him to tie this flavorful buns in a variety of foods. Examples of this are the meatballs of Mortadella of Prato with ice cream, a combination that dissolves the heat.
