Prosciutto San Daniele has been made the same way for a thousand years. It is a DOP product, which means that the breed of the pig, the feed of the pig, and the processing -- which takes 12-13 months -- are tightly controlled to assure quality and consistency.
Only animals from 10 select provinces in north-central Italy can be used in the making of San Daniele prosciutto.

Both Prosciutto San Daniele and Prosciutto di Parma are naked food -- nothing here but ham, a minimal amount of sea salt (less than 6%), and mountain air. The perfect micro-climates create the perfect cured hams. As the thigh meat air dries, it loses more than a quarter of its weight. This creates concentrated flavor and protein.

It would be an insult to this deep red, high protein meat to slather it with mustard, coat it with sugar, or murder its delicate taste with pickles. Keep it simple. Savor it. Both Prosciutto San Daniele and Prosciutto di Parma work well as an appetizer on a plate of cold cuts with cheese and olives, or wrapped around melon, figs, peaches, pears, or mangoes, or scallops seared in olive oil. Chopped, they top off a quick, light pasta sauce of olive oil, prosciutto and peas. Or add some at the last minute to risotto. And you can't go wrong with either Prosciutto di Parma or Prosciutto San Daniele in panini.

the best prosciutto in the world, period November 18, 2015
Reviewer: Roger Scott from Lafayette, IN United States  
I order this pretty much every time I order from O&O -- it is just the best thing ever.  The best di Parmas can have a funny long-lasting aftertaste, but this crudo is clean and delicious. Let it warm a little out of the fridge before eating.

Great meat for creating a yummy meat and cheese tray. Add a few olives and you're set! Shipping is quick and the olives arrived here safe and sound.
