Typical RAW HAMS of the Friuli region

Raw Hams of Friuli: San Daniele, Sauris, Cormons, Carso and the 'nostrani' of mountain, hill, flatland



  The quality of a good raw ham is principally the result of the ventilation: in fact this is the unique system for gradually eliminating from the pork tissues whole water, which is the element able to spoil the meat. Not for nothing the locality of San Daniele has became famous in the food industry for its fresh and , over all, windy microclimate which allow a perfect ripening in only 13 months
 For every kind of raw ham we indicate at least one Producer with the direct sale and one tasting point.


The Raw Ham of SAN DANIELE

Very known, one of the strength point of San Daniele ham is the activity of the ‘Consorzio’ (Association of Producers) of protection which guaranties the constancy of the product quality in every associated firm. For this reason we do not name Producers of San Daniele, also because almost all firms have the factory shop open to the public and are quickly and every were in the town available both in situ and by telephone, being all in the municipal district of San Daniele. We signal only the Consorzio Prosciutto di San Daniele, Via Umberto 1°, San Daniele del Friuli Tel.0432-957515

Local Raw Ham of the Friuli VG region: mountain, hill, flat land and some particular localities

In the Friuli VG region they however are numerous the areas that enjoy a very good ventilation thanks to the proximity of the sea to the mountains. In addition to the more known localities below indicated, several areas in fact produce very good raw hams that people names ‘nostrani’ (local) every one with significant nuances. Then besides the famous San Daniele, in Friuli other six types if raw ham are worthy of an rewarding tasting.


Friulian mountains Raw Ham

It is principally produced in Carnia area


Friulian Raw Ham of Sauris

Although famous for its smoking, really the goodness and the particular flavour the Raw ham of Sauris are due just to the type of air and climate of the locality of Sauris. So for other cured pork meats produced in this place today is adopted the simple wording ‘of Sauris’.

The Raw Ham of Fagagna

It is not yet officially traditional product of Friuli, but we must signal it as ham ‘Crudo di Fagagna’ because, by the tradition of originality of the Fagagna community, it is made not with haunch but with the loin of the pork. That gives the result of a more delicate taste and lighter tenderness of the meat. In addition, the ‘Raw of Fagagna’ does not need a long ripening (only 7-8 months). The meat derives from pigs of breed specially selected , exclusively raised in the Food district of San Daniele’ and with traditional methods.

Friulian-habsburg Raw Ham of Cormons

The middle-european tradition of the smoking has contributed to the success of another very fine raw ham of the Friuli. The Raw ham of Cormons. But, besides the light smoking, the true secret lies in the climate of this town, especially mild, and in the wonderful simplicity with which this ham is ventilated: in the great historical house of the factory the hams are riped opening (humidity permitting) every evening the windows and closing them at the morning

Friulian-slovenian Raw Ham of the Karst

Another area of the Friuli dedicated to the natural preservation of the meat is the Karst. The transnational Italian-slovenian tradition here wants a lightly softer ham and then more fatter (in fact it is cut more thick), but the ripening is always perfect. This raw ham is more tasting, as that one of flat lands, than the ones in the rest of the region. The pigs are breed normally in the semi-wild state. (in the photo, ripening room, hollowed in the rock, of the factory and holiday farm Fattoria Carsica Bajta in Sgonico-Trieste).

Friulian Raw Ham of Flat lands

In the wet flat lands from San Vito al Tagliamento to Cervignano (Livenza-Isonzo) a little number of factories are started with the production of raw ham, thanks to the excellent quality of the meats of the pigs breed there. This raw ham needs however a very long ripening (about 24 months) but it is noteworthy on softness and savourness stronger than the ones in the rest of the region.
