Authentic 24 Month Prosciutto di Parma DOP by Tanara - Whole Leg
Tender, sweet Prosciutto di Parma DOP originated in the Italian hills around Parma, where it's still prepared with the same traditional methods. The Parma stock is fed a special diet of whey and grains, and the hams are trimmed and massaged with natural sea salt before aging for at least 24 months. Only select Prosciutto from Parma DOP earns the distinctive Ducal Crown Label representing its quality and excellence. The King of Italian dry cured hams, Prosciutto di Parma DOP is a highly controlled product, produced under strict Italian law which governs the size of leg to be used, where the legs come from, and what the hogs eat, among other strict considerations. Once the leg has been selected, it undergoes a salting stage that last for a few weeks. Next it is cleaned off to begin the curing process, which occurs in humidity and temperature controlled rooms replicating the fall, winter and spring seasons. This slow process is closely monitored to ensure that the legs are properly cured and that the end product measures up to the high standards established by Italian law. Prosciutto di Parma DOP has an attractive rosy coloring, distinctive mild and delicate flavor, and a velvety smooth texture. It is a sophisticated, ready-to-eat and highly nutritious addition to any snack or meal. Enjoy a variety of meals including sandwiches, pastas and soups.
