Tsamarella is a traditional Cypriot product and it is one of the most representative types of delicacies in the country.
The production of tsamarella as well as other types of meat is the same method which was used in order to preserve meat until the introduction of refrigerators.
In particular the meat was placed in the wooden cupboards with a net, so that the meat was protected by insects and at the same time was ventilated.
