Prosciutto San Daniele, Whole Boned, small
If you have a meat slicer, the best way to enjoy Prosciutto Prolongo is in thin slices. Follow our suggestions for optimum results.
Boned and packaged Prosciutto will keep in the refrigerator for up to six months. Once opened, store in the refrigerator at + 4-7 °C with a damp cloth or thin film over the sliced end.
Slice by hand, or even better use a slicer, removing the rind as you go. To prevent wastage, begin at the FIOCCO, the leaner part of the ham on the side with the stitching, and then proceed from the BUTT end (PUNTA) to the HOCK end (STINCO).
FIOCCO: Lean side of ham
The best way to enjoy Prosciutto Prolongo is on its own, thin-sliced with breadsticks or bread and preferably a glass of good dry white wine, such as Sauvignon or Friulano. Prosciutto Prolongo goes wonderfully well with figs, melon, kiwi fruit, apples, grapes or pears. Avoid serving with pickles as their acidulous taste masks Prosciutto Prolongo’s sweet flavour and aroma. Cut into strips or diced, Prosciutto Prolongo contributes its unique flavour to pasta sauces, gnocchi (potato dumplings), pancakes and vegetable or bean soups.
Another idea for a starter with a difference: Serve slices of Prosciutto Prolongo with soft polenta.
Did you know? The tiny solid granules that you sometimes find in the lean meat are not grains of salt. they are simply harmless crystals of tyrosine, a natural substance deriving from the ageing of proteins and a guarantee of slow, unhurried maturation.
