Capicola is made from the collar muscle (shoulder area) and shaped into a casing for even cooking, and uniform slices. Ours has incredibly deep pork flavor for a few reasons: We use family farm raised pork, so the animal has an opportunity to use its muscles which adds flavor to the meat. We use heritage breed pork that have the unique characteristics of driving flavor deep into each muscle via interlaced intramuscular fat. This gives our capicola marbling that exceeds commodity produced capicola. Lastly, our pigs have a varied diet, which creates a softer fat which melts at lower temperatures, releasing the flavor of pork and complementary herbs and spices to your palate more readily.
