Charcuterie is one of the main outputs of the farm meats produced by the Essex pig company and other alternative farms in the UK and in France. Charcuterie was originally a method of preserving meat and by meat I mean pork meat mostly to be specific. Long ago before refrigerators were manufactured and introduced, this way of preserving meat was all the world knew and was a very important invention because it helped to save meat from going wasted. But for most people today, charcuterie is just a set of delicious food with a great taste.
There are many types of charcuterie specialties however the French charcuterie is considered one of the very best. This is because the French have developed excellent gourmet food products over the years and centuries, such as French salami, saucisson, boudin blanc (milk sausage) and boudin noir (blood sausage), saucisses de strasbourg (strasburg sausages), duck magret and foie gras of course. Their love and popularity is growing again with so many options for shoppers to choose from as charcuterie products can be found in more and more stores and supermarkets.
Just like always, the internet can be the best place for charcuterie shopping (search for "Buy charcuterie online"). While you can find charcuterie in many local stores in France, this could be harder in other countries so you may decide to order charcuterie online and ordering from one of the best online French stores called Saveur du Jour.
