We like to think of prosciutto as ham that's had time to luxuriate in a spa for a year. If you can imagine how much better you'd be after a year in a spa, you can begin to imagine how delightful prosciutto can be. Trader Joe's Sliced Prosciutto lives up to this promise.
Our Sliced Prosciutto is crafted for us by a well-known, award-winning Italian salumeri here in the U.S. They begin with full hams that are cured in the traditional Italian style, then allowed to age slowly for at least one year. As the ham ages, its flavor intensifies and its character builds, resulting in richly-flavored Prosciutto that's outstanding on Panini with arugula & Asiago, a natural with melon for brunch or hors d'oeuvres and super on a pizza - try it with Genova Pesto, or a cream-based sauce and inch-long cuts of asparagus.
We're selling each four ounce package for $3.99, considerably less than you'll pay for comparable Prosciutto elsewhere. You'll find ours in our refrigerated case.
