Apart from being in Gironde’s pork butcher’s, the gratton is also available from supermarkets as a factory-made product.
Knowledge and savoir-faire are the key words when it comes to making this charcuterie product. The gratton is made by combining fresh ham, shoulder and a unique blend of spices. Originating from Lormont, the gratton is now eaten in all of Gironde. Its name comes from the fact that the cooking pot must be scrubbed or ‘gratter’ in order to obtain it.
