Prosciutto is the Italian word for ham. In English, the term prosciutto is almost always used for a dry-cured ham that is usually sliced thinly and served uncooked; this style is called prosciutto crudo in Italian and is distinguished from cooked ham, prosciutto cotto. Commonly associated with Tuscany and Emilia, the most renowned and expensive legs of prosciutto come from central and northern Italy, such as those of Parma, Friuli-Venezia Giulia, and San Daniele.

One of the high points of Italian cuisine, Prosciutto di Parma is a world-reknown gourmet favorite. Its traditions began more than 2,000 years ago. The particular climate and environment of Parma are what gave birth to this gustatory delight. Beginning with the choice of livestock, the production of an authentic Prosciutto di Parma requires highly specific seasoning and processing. Aged for 10 to 12 months, the only addition to the pure meat is a limited portion of salt, making this prosciutto an all-natural, nutritious delicacy.

A special consortium regulates the producers and farmers to ensure full compliance with strict standards that respect every step of the valued tradition. The stamp of the consortiumís crown assures you of the authenticity of the product.

PARMACOTTO sliced Prosciutto di Parma is served as an antipasto, marrying well with melon, or is delicious with fresh peas or asparagus. A sumptuous addition to a creamy pasta sauce or a simple Caprese salad, or a distinctive addition to stuffings for other meat, it also takes to any partnership with breads or pizzas. Veal Saltimbocca brings prosciutto together with sage for a perennial Italian favorite.

Salumeria Rosi Parmacotto, founded in 1977, is an internationally recognized producer of a wide range of quality Italian meat products.
