The Bresi is one of the only smoked meat of Franche-Comte that is not made of pork but beef. It's a whole beef fillet, from the very same cow that produce the milk for the Comte. The filet is carefully selected for its marbled aspect, then cured with dry salt for 3 weeks with various spices (onions, bay leaf, thyme and juniper) and is then slow smoked for 3 weeks using resinous wood. The Bresi will lose over 50 per cent of its weight after 3 weeks but will have taken a wonderful dark red colour, a translucent texture and perfume and powerful aroma.
The cows are reared outside in the French countryside.
About Nitrates and Nitrites
Nitrites and nitrates are essential for both ensuring meat is cured fully and properly and also for allowing the complex flavours to develop. Much like sulphite is a natural and important part of wine-making - nitrites do the same job for charcuterie. We want to provide transparency to you so that you can make your own decisions about consuming.
