The Motzetta, Raw Ham

The motzetta, dried meat of beef, chamois, deer or boar, originates from the ancient necessity to preserve the meat for a long time, to meet the needs of the family during wintertime. At first, to look at it seems tough and hard, but in the mouth it becomes tender and tasty.

The motzetta is served as an entrée, cut into thin slices and accompanied by a typical local rye bread.
