You don’t need to eat pork to enjoy charcuterie, thanks to enticing alternatives by meat experts like Spotted Trotter. Here, duck breast gets cured like prosciutto and rubbed with juniper, allspice, and orange zest. The earthy, sweet flavor of the duck shines through in every tender slice, each of which is crowned with a layer of melty fat. A rich choice for a charcuterie board. Echo the red hue with paprika-rubbed Alisios®, or lean into the meatiness with a strong sheepy cheese like Roncal.
- Prosciutto is an example of whole muscle curing, where an entire cut of meat (a duck breast, in this case) is cured, versus salami where the meat is cut up and mixed with fat and spices.
- Spotter Trotter uses the breast of the Moulard duck, which is known for its dark red color, substantial breast, and sizeable layer of fat.
- They cure the meat with salt, brown sugar, and black pepper, as well as a careful blend of aromatics like juniper, chili, paprika, mustard, bay leaf, orange zest, allspice, and anise.
