Prosciutto

Recommended Posts

Guest Band Mom

I found a recipe that calls for prosciutto.

What is prosciutto?

Prosciutto is an Italian-style raw ham, a specialty of Parma, cured by dry-salting for one month, followed by air-drying in cool curing sheds for half a year or longer. It is usually cut into tissue-thin slices that highlight its intense flavor and deep pink color. The slices are enjoyed on their own or are heated or cooked as part of a recipe. Prosciutto di Parma, imported from Italy, is regarded as the best quality. Refrigerate prosciutto, well wrapped, for several weeks.

 

Hope that helps! smile.gif

I believe its highly fattening. I have had it in the past at weddings as an appetizer and it was wrapped around a hearty slice of cantaloupe.

Not sure of the points value on that stuff. But yes, it is tasty. If ever anyone finds out the points pass it on. Thanks. wave.gif

I bought some to use in a recipe a few weeks ago. It worked out to 1 pt. per 1/2 ounce.

Thanks for the info. Now for another question.

 

Do you buy it in the deli? Or is it prepackaged in the meat area?

 

Is there a subststitue to be used in a bead soup recipe?

You can buy it in the deli, but usually only at an Italian specialty store. I find mine at Trader Joe's (or comparable store) in the prepackaged meat section.

I buy mine at Albertsons. I studied in Italy last year and really grew to like a lot of the local cuisine (including prosciutto) eating with DH's family. At my Albertson's it comes pre-packaged and is in the section with the packs of salami, etc. I haven't had it in awhile and I have to point it every time because I forget but it's a point a slice, or 1.5 for two. I can't remember exactly.

 

Just thought I'd let you know!

I can't get this at my local grocery store but it's at Costco in the refridgerated deli section.

 

YUM!!! I love prosciutto. On pizza, with pasta, on a sandwich or just plain. smile.gif
