Winter salami (Hungarian Téliszalámi) is a type of Hungarian salami based on a centuries old producing tradition. Made from mangalitsa pork and spices: white pepper, allspice and others. Winter salami is cured in cold air and smoked slowly. During the dry ripening process a special noble-mold is formed on the casing surface.
Szegedi téliszalámi (winter salami of Szeged) gained European Union PDO status in 2007, followed by Budapesti téliszalámi, which gained PGI status in 2009. The Hungarian Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development places many specific regulations on what can be called Szeged winter salami.
