Prosciutto di Parma Crudo

Item #: 8079

From the lush rolling hills of the Parma and Langhirano regions of Emilia-Romagna comes one of Italy’s finest foods. Aged for over 400 days, Prosciutto di Parma is a delicacy of only two ingredients; pork and sea salt, but the curing is truly an art form. The tradition and skill of curing this ham is one that has been passed down for generations whereas each leg of pork is hand rubbed with an exact amount of salt in each area to ensure a thorough and correct cure. From this point the prosciutto is then passed from one curing room to another, each having its own particular temperature and humidity to moderate the curing process. The end result is absolute perfection with each leg having a magnificent rosy color matched with a pearl white marbling of fat. The a bouquet of fragrance surrounds the prosciutto when sliced is only to be out done by the melt away texture on your palate of savory and finishing sweetness. A true culinary journey prosciutto di Parma is an absolute delight for any lover of Italian cuisine.
