Prosciutto di Parma
Silky, sliced Prosciutto di Parma makes every dish feel like a special occasion. It’s a delicious charcuterie accompaniment to cheese, melons, dates, olives and breads. This ham variety can also be served at the start of a meal as an antipasto, wrapped around steamed asparagus spears, or as an ingredient in specialty sandwiches or pizzas.
