So, what is gelatina di maiale?

Gelatina di maiale, also known as pork gelatin, is a versatile and flavorful ingredient used in many dishes across various cuisines. It is made by boiling pig skin and bones until the collagen breaks down into a gel-like substance, which is then cooled and molded into blocks or sheets. This protein-rich ingredient adds a unique texture and mouthfeel to soups, stews, and sauces, as well as desserts like panna cotta and fruit jellies. With its natural umami flavor and ability to thicken and bind ingredients, gelatina di maiale is a valuable addition to any kitchen.
