Prosciutto

Dry cured by hand and delicately aged, our prosciutto hams have been well known for many,many years by local clients and others. Prosciutto, or specifically Prosciutto Crudo, is an Italian air-dried ham. Always served thinly sliced, this uncooked dry-cured ham is famous all over the world. In Italian, the word Prosciutto simply means Ham. The curing process of Prosciutto involves salting, washing and hanging the ham to air dry in a cool, dark, dry environment. The goal is to use the minimum amount of salt to keep the meat sweet tasting and tender. This extensive curing process may last between (9) nine and (24) twenty four months.
