Description
 

Sweet, unctuous, delicate. Only four ingredients go into the production of Parma Ham: Italian pigs, salt, air and time. Unlike its imitations, it is all-natural; additives such as colorings and nitrites are forbidden by the rules of the consortium which give Prosciutto di Parma its coveted PDO status (short for Protected Designation of Origin).

By law Prosciutto di Parma can only be made in the hills around Parma, with the hind legs of specially bred pigs from authorized breeding farms located in 10 regions of central-northern Italy. Their diet is a specially regulated blend of grains, cereals and whey from Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese production.

Making a Parma Ham is a long and arduous process; it begins with the legs being salted by a highly trained maestro salatore, or salt master, and followed by many months of carefully controlled curing so that the ham absorbs only enough salt to preserve it. Regulations ensure that the prosciutto is cured at least 1 year, and some may be cured as long as 3 years.

Exquisite! May 5, 2016
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Laredo, TX United States  
This is the best prosciutto I have ever had.  It's sliced so thin, one could read through it -- like onion skin! And the taste is amazing. Unlike many other prosciuttos I've had, this stuff stays nice and succulent, probably because of the way it's packaged: sandwiched between equally thin sheets of some sort of plastic (non-stick) that keep it from drying out. I served it with melon and fontina and olives.

the most delicious! April 14, 2016
Reviewer: minga fannin from Portland, OR United States  
because of sale, free shipping that included perishables, i got some of the proscitto di parma. i was excited about the fact that it is so beautifully made with nothing but pork, salt and time. wow! this is an amazing product! we savored it absolutely by itself, having sweet savory slices at the start of every meal. until in a few days it was gone. sublime flavor. i have dreams about it!
