Prosciutto di parma is my prosciutto of choice. It’s made in Parma, Italy, from special pigs bred under strict quality controls.
When shopping for sliced prosciutto, check the label for the gold crown. This symbol guarantees you’re buying Italian-bred pork cured 100% naturally, meaning there are no additives, hormones, gluten, or coloring agents. Look for it near the deli counter with the specialty meats and cheeses.
Of course, you can make these prosciutto appetizers with other types, but know that the texture and tastes will vary. Jamón from Spain, American prosciutto, and prosciutto cured in different regions of Italy are also good options.
