First among the local products:
Speck Alto Adige IGP - Speck Macelleria Pramstaller gr. 1000: The speck hams are salted and flavoured with a mixture of aromas (salt, pepper, juniper, rosemary and bay). They are then dry-corned for three weeks at controlled temperatures and turned over various times to help the brine penetrate. The mixture of aromas is peculiar to each speck producer who can give a personal touch to the product by employing recipes that are handed down from generation to generation, being particularly careful, however, that the percentage of salt present in the finished product does not exceed the 5% limit. The hams are later alternatively exposed to the smoking and to the drying phases. Finally, the hams are cured by being put up to dry in spacious rooms where the fresh mountain air circulates freely.
