An Italian delicacy that dates back to at least the 12th century, prosciutto is cherished for its texture, color, fragrance and taste. Our prosciutto comes from the highest quality fresh hams that are gently massaged with a hint of salt and then placed in our aging rooms for the slow drying process. Our Curing Masters check the prosciutto daily in the traditional Italian manner handed down for hundreds of years. When cured to perfection, the prosciutto is then hand-trimmed by our Master Salumiere.
The King of Italian dry cured hams, Prosciutto di Parma is a highly controlled product, produced under strict Italian law which governs the size of leg to be used, where the legs come from, and what the hogs eat, among other strict considerations. Once the leg has been selected, it undergoes a salting stage that last for a few weeks. Next it is cleaned off to begin the curing process, which occurs in humidity and temperature controlled rooms replicating the fall, winter and spring seasons. This slow process is closely monitored to ensure that the legs are properly cured and that the end product measures up to the high standards established by Italian law. Prosciutto di Parma has an attractive rosy coloring, distinctive mild and delicate flavor, and a velvety smooth texture. It is a sophisticated, ready-to-eat and highly nutritious addition to any snack or meal. Enjoy a variety of meals including sandwiches, pastas and soups.
