Magnifici del Mezzogiorno Pepper Powder exclusively from Calabria (Hot) - 250g

15.00

An amazing, high quality hot Calabrian pepper product from famed Magnifici del Mezzogiorno. This brand is much more complex than our La Gustosa pepper powder, and is sold as you see in 250g bags. We feel this pepper has been ground with less seeds, which leads to the better sweetness and complexity of the powder. We've used it when making hot versions of our inspired Soppressata di Calabria, and used it as part of our hot percentage in 'Nduja. Available in limited quantities as it is hard to stock!

 

Sold as is in 250g bags.

 

When using pepper powders it is important to remember that if you go above 2% of powder the texture of the Soppressata will suffer greatly, as the particles will interfere with the bind of the meat as it dries. This causes the salami to be crumbly, and when you slice will fall apart. It is our recommendation that you keep pepper powder products to a max of 1.5% in any mix or combination to avoid this textural issue.

 

If using to make 'Nduja the above rule does not apply as the fat percentage is so high we do not need to be concerned with poor binding. 'Nduja contains 20-30% Calabrian pepper products by green weight of the meat, and the fat percentage must be very high to keep the product spreadable. Fat percentages vary, but the general amount is between 80-90% fat. Fat can be from pork jowls, fatty pork belly, fat back, or fatty trim.
