Wiki article on this topic: Cotechino Modena or Cotechino di Modena [koteˈkiːno di ˈmɔːdena] is a fresh sausage made from pork, fatback, and pork rind, and comes from Modena, Italy, where it has PGI status. Zampone Modena is closely related and also has PGI status.
Cotechino dates back to around 1511 to Gavello in Mirandola, where, whilst besieged, the people had to find a way to preserve meat and use the less tender cuts, so made the cotechino. Mirandola developed its own specialty enveloped in a hollowed out pig's trotter, named the Zampone.
By the 18th century it had become more popular than the yellowish sausage that had been around at the time, and in the 19th century entered mass production in and around the area.
Cotechino is often served with lentils alongside mashed potatoes or polenta, especially around New Year.
