The meat is left to mature for a few months in the dark of the «goelie» a type of wooden container, or in a terracotta container under the pressure of a good few kilos and handfuls of salt, garlic, sage and rosemary. Afterwards it is hung and dried in a dry and well ventilated place for some days.
It is served thinly sliced as an hors d'oeuvres, often accopanied by a slice of toasted and buttered wholemeal bread.
