This Prosciutto di Parma is crudo and produced with Italian pork coming from the best breeding areas of the Po Valley and from pigs that have only eaten natural feed. The thighs weigh at least 13 kg or more. The ham is treated with sea salt for a pleasantly sweet taste; no other ingredient or additive is used. A lard called sugnatura is rubbed on the bottom of the ham where the bone is to protect the ham and to ensure consistent development. Once prepared, each ham is taken to special ventilated room.
We are proud to bring the authentic Serrano in the US market, made from pigs born, raised and processed entirely in Spain.Our pigs are older, heavier and fattier than the pigs from North Europe. This is a guarantee of higher quality. It means a product more tasty and complex.
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.
