The best quality prosciutto hams come from Italy, and this is no exception. Cotto Italiano comes from the region of Parma, often considered the culinary capital of Italy. This means each leg of Italian ham carries with it centuries of refinement, artistry and gastronomic heritage, making it much more than just another piece of meat. Each Italian ham is enhanced with spices and brine, massaged into a distinct oval shape, then steam-cooked for 18 to 22 hours, resulting in a pleasantly pink, perfect leg of ham. No flavor additives or phosphates are incorporated, so the meat retains its natural quality.
Slice it into wafer-thin slices as required, then savor it by itself, or use it to add a salty bite to a variety of dishes and snacks, such as sandwiches, pizza, frittatas or savory rolls.
This cooked ham for sale was prepared by Parmacotto, a company based in Italy but with offices worldwide.
