Below are links to online sources for Tasso (TAH-so).
Tasso is a specialty of south Louisiana Cajun cuisine. Tasso ham is made from the hog’s shoulder. This cut is typically very flavorful because the muscle in the shoulder is constantly used by the animal. In Bayou cuisine, tasso is typically used to season dishes like soups, gumbo, grits, rice, and gravies.
D’Artagnan gives a few ideas for cooking with their Tasso — adding it to creamy dips and fondues, to chowders and bisques, to sauteed or braised greens, etc. Go to dartgnan.com for the full list.
