Prosciutto di Parma DOP Boneless 24 Months Boschi Fratelli - 16 lb Approx.

Boschi Fratelli Prosciutto di Parma DOP 24 Months is made according the ancient tradition, where the pork leg is cured with pure sea salt  in order to keep the meat as sweet-tasting and as supple as possible. The hams are made from the rear haunches of the pig; The curing is controlled carefully so that the ham absorbs only enough salt to preserve it. By the end, a trimmed ham will have lost more than a quarter of its weight through moisture loss, helping to concentrate the flavour. The meat becomes tender and the distinctive aroma and flavor of Parma Ham emerge.

The name Parma Ham is exclusively reserved to hams produced in Parma according to the strict rules defined by the Consorzio’s specifications, which are based on the ancient tradition of its place of origin; in 1996 Parma Ham became one of the first meat products to be awarded the Designation of Protected Origin status. 

How to taste

With its full-bodied flavor and silky texture, Parma Ham is a world-class specialty food and perfectly enhances appetizers, pasta dishes, salads, sandwiches and entrées. There is no need to remove the band of fat around each slice, which helps give the ham its balance of flavor and texture.

For a classic antipasto, arrange three to four slices of Parma Ham on a plate, accompanied simply by Italian cheeses and bread. Drape Parma Ham slices around fresh figs or melon slices, or try other fruits with complementary flavors, such as ripe pears, papaya, pineapple and kiwis. To create an elegant salad, top mixed greens with slivers of Parma Ham and curls of Parmigiano-Reggiano.

Make an Italian-style panino by layering slices of Parma Ham on a crusty roll with fresh or smoked mozzarella, tomato slices and a sprinkle of olive oil. Wrap Parma Ham slices around bread sticks, lightly cooked asparagus spears or grilled shrimp. Dice or chop thick-sliced of Parma Ham to flavor pastas, rice or risotto, or vegetables such as asparagus or peas.

Sauté finely diced Parma Ham with onions, carrots, celery and herbs to make a soffritto, or flavor base, for sauces and many other dishes. Parma Ham also makes a wonderful cooking ingredient, adding personality to pasta and a delicious flavor when wrapped around fish or chicken and cooked in the oven.
