A prosciutto crudo dolcetto is sweet and salty at the same time. In Italy it is often eaten as it is, at most wrapped around a piece of cracker or combined with some melon and/or figs. A whole ham weighs 6 kg and is best when sliced thinly. Remove the ham from the refrigerator well in advance because the flavor is best when it is at room temperature.

Available as a whole or as a 1/4 piece. All the meat is vacuum packed.

Prosciutto crudo is an air-dried and matured ham, so the product has never been heated. Its origins lie far in Italy’s past, even before the time of the Romans.

Italy has many fantastic ingredients , but this special pork ham is perhaps the most famous. This ham melts on the tongue and has a nice balance between sweet and salty.

The Romans already ate this delicacy, it is a raw product that can be stored for a long time. That made this type of meat popular. Especially in the times when cooling products was not yet possible.

During ripening, a ham loses a quarter of its weight. That is because the ham is brined, the salt extracts the moisture from the meat and thus the ham becomes a lot lighter.

This ham always comes from the hind legs of the pig. Furthermore, the pig must be at least 9 months old before it can be slaughtered. To guarantee a good taste, this ham should never be frozen!
Furthermore, nothing else may be added, no spices, no aroma, no smoke. Only pork and salt, pure nature.

Not as bad as you may think

This ham is not as bad for health as many people think. For example, 2 slices contain 75 calories, 6 grams of protein and 6 grams of fat, 2/3 of which are unsaturated. It also contains many amino acids. So as long as you eat with food, you can safely enjoy the delicious Italian specialty.
