This recipe really has its roots in the past in the historical memory of the Spinelli family in San Gimignano.

Handed down by the family for over 150 years, it combines the taste of typical Tuscan game with the methods of preservation that were once used. The wild boar, in fact, in the countryside of San Gimignano is certainly one of the animals most hunted since ancient times.

Our grandmothers used to keep the meat, brought home on hunting days from October to January, therefore in full autumn and winter when the consumption of this meat with its robust flavor goes well with the cold and the need for more protein.

To preserve the meat, the most commonly used method was undoubtedly the use of olive oil, another element that our land usually gives us generously. We present again this recipe which is very easy to make compared to cooking traditional stewed wild boar. The only recommendation we give you is to make sure that the meat is completely immersed in the oil so that it does not come into contact with the air and risks going bad for the oxidation process.

Enjoy this recipe from the Spinelli Family !!!!
