Syglino from Mani
Syglino is a special cured meat of the Mani, Peloponnese. Following an old tradition, pork meat is smoked with aromatic herbs over wood and the salted meat is then boiled in pots with wine, oranges and spices. The meat is preserved in large clay pots using only extra virgin olive oil or ‘glina’ ( pork fat) as a preserving agent. “Syglino” is an extremely tasty food, which can be served, cold or warm, as an appetizer with wine or ouzo, or in omelets and sauces. Although, it is still prepared at home using the traditional method, ‘Syglino’ is now produced and packaged as a high-quality product for year-round enjoyment.
