What is Prosciutto?
Prosciutto di parma is a cured ham that is made from high quality pork legs. The meat is salted and cured for a few weeks and is then washed and air dried for 1-3 years, which makes it incredibly flavorful. It’s a sweet and salty staple in Italian dishes as it adds complex flavors to simple ingredients and you can find it at just about any grocery store. It’s best at room temperature so take it out a bit early for the most
