Tasting Notes: Rich and rounded with the flavor of our own blend of Achari spices – truly unique Animal: pig
The spice mix for this salami is based on an Indian recipe for pickling going back hundreds of years. This is combined with traditional methods for fermenting, and ageing which come together to create a genuinely unique, contemporary product. A delicate blend including fennel seed, Talicherry black pepper, and fenugreek give this salami a complex yet subtle flavour.
About Tempus charcuterie
Our Philosophy is a simple one.
To make exceptional charcuterie you need exceptional pigs. So what makes the right pig? What we know is that age and size are the two key factors in delivering a special product. Tempus, the Latin word for time, underpins everything we do to create our range of charcuterie.
At Tempus we only use ex-breeding sows and ex-dairy beef in our charcuterie, which in the case of the pigs means animals that are in excess of 4 years old and weigh more than 180kg, as they deliver marbling, fat ratios and intensity of flavour that simply cannot be matched by younger and smaller animals.
This ethos is also part of our commitment to utilising the food-chain correctly. We have a responsibility to use animals already in existence as these, often overlooked animals are truly special. They should be treated with the respect reverence they deserve. In this instance, old is indeed better.
At our purpose-built facility in Weybridge, we butcher, cure, ferment and age our products, finishing them for up to a year in our custom-built ageing room where the natural moulds have been allowed to colonise. Alongside our technical know-how is our obsessive exploration of flavour through our understanding of spices which together have led to our unique and multi-award winning range of exceptional British Charcuterie
