Salt & Time Butcher Shop
Perusing Salt & Time’s website gives a very clear idea of the breadth of items the company produces. From classic Genoa salami to prosciutto and mortadella, Runkle and Butler’s emphasis is on the utmost importance of letting no part of a pig go to waste. They use fat and skin for sausage and stocks, and they debone heads to make delectable items like porchetta di testa, which is rolled with carrots and herbs, poached and sliced thin.
They purchase their pigs from local farms such as Richardson Farms, Reliable Farms and Burgundy Pasture. Butler describes himself and Runkle as “pig junkies”; they get particularly excited whenever they get a chance to work with a new breed, always choosing prosciutto as the first item to make for comparison to previous pigs.
