Traditionally Prosciutto is made from the hind leg of Mediterranean pigs or wild boars. Butchered, cleaned, and heavily salted, the pork is left to age and cure for a span of roughly two months. This salting and curing is a very important step in the production of not just Prosciutto but all salt-cured meats. The salt acts as a preservative, drawing out any excess moisture and blood from the meat as well as defending against bacteria that could spoil the pork. Once the salt has done its job to satisfaction, the entire cut is rinsed carefully before being dry-aged for up to 18 months longer. Though the complete process can take up to two years, the amazing results speak for themselves. Delicious in a multitude of ways, try adding Prosciutto to your next charcuterie board or hors devours tray. Serve it as an appetizer, delicious as a stand-alone or wrapped around lightly cooked vegetables (we love Prosciutto-wrapped asparagus), or sweet fresh fruit (ripe melon or fresh dates work particularly well). Add it to your tapas, pizza, or morning bagel, its savory salty flavor adds a delicious taste to so many meals, rounding out and enhancing the flavors already present!
