  • Parma Ham: The Fame of Italian Prosciutto – ". . .We wouldn’t be making such a big deal about Italian prosciutto if it wasn’t such a big deal. Parma ham is a lot different from the pre-packaged fair you’ll find at your local supermarket. It is a centuries old tradition, an art if you will. Italians use the word prosciutto commonly to refer to ham, but the real sense of the word refers strictly to the uncooked, salted and dried variety. It takes no less than 18 months to create this culinary masterpiece, which is an elaborate and strictly regulated process involving a series of techniques to ensure the correct flavor and texture, as well as the famous poker test to make sure the right aroma has been achieved at the prosciutto’s core.
