WHAT IS PROSCIUTTO?
But really quick, what is prosciutto? Pronounced as “pro-shoo-tow”, in it’s simplest definition is an Italian meat. It’s a pinkish red color with a small amount of marbled fat throughout the meat and on the edges. It’s a dry-cured ham and usually is served as paper-thin slices. That flavor is salty, but a milder flavor than bacon.
It’s different than pancetta which comes from the belly of the big. Prosciutto comes from the hind leg. Prosciutto is salt-cured and air-dried so it is safe to eat without needing to cook it or apply heat.
One of the simplest ways toe enjoy prosciutto is make it crispy! Make crispy prosciutto by baking it at 400 degrees for 10-12 minutes. From A Seasoned Greeting
