Acorns have been associated with superior dry-cured meat for centuries, and La Quercia is proud to be the first to bring this tradition to the United States. These woodland roaming pigs eat a diet of acorns, hickory nuts, wild plants & mushrooms, all of which add a spectacular richness and creamy texture to the pork. When cured, the dark coral meat is nutty and sweet, with an unexpected depth and meltingly tender texture.
