How to cut mortadella with a slicer
Paying proper attention to the cutting of mortadella is essential to best preserve its flavor. For this, a precise and careful procedure must be followed, as well as the use of a proper mortadella slicer.
Let's look at the basic steps that should not be overlooked before proceeding with the slicing of this particular cured meat:
- Always remove the "skin" of the mortadella, before cutting. By wetting the sausage with water, the skin will be more elastic and its removal will be much easier;
- Pay attention to the thickness of the slices! After placing the mortadella on the slicer making the surface well adhered, it is essential to set the thickness of the slice you want to obtain, which must be very thin.
