So that the Speck can develop its natural taste, the following should be observed during storage.
Fold the open Speck into a dry linen cloth or butter paper.
The ideal storage temperature is 15 - 18 degrees Celsius. Suitable places for this are a larder, a cellar, or the vegetable compartment of a refrigerator.
Prior to consumption, Speck should be allowed to breathe at room temperature for two to three hours. This way, the Speck develops it full aroma, similar to red wine.
When stored correctly, Speck will keep for three months.
