What is prosciutto?
Prosciutto is a type of unsmoked Italian dry-cured ham that has a sweet, salty flavor and delicate texture.
It’s made from a pork thigh (also called the ham) that’s salted and dry-aged for about a year in cold storerooms.
Traditional authentic prosciutto, sometimes called Parma ham, is an artisanal product of Italy.
Prosciutto is very different from American-style bacon, which comes from the belly of the pig and is much fattier and usually smoked.
