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.
