La Quercia Prosciutto Americano 3 oz

$13.99/Each


Herb Eckhouse's butt looks mighty fine here, because he's so selective in choosing pork to cure for this Iowa made prosciutto. From natural pork producers, (including the same Niman Ranch farmers we've come to adore) only the ''culatello'' hind muscle is used, meaning no bone and more delicate meat to start off the 8 month curing process. It's sweeter than Italian made, without any overwhelming mustiness. This is one instance when we want Herb's butt to look fat.

    Brie and apples, cheddar and apples – both delicious! Why not extend that deliciousness to apples in liquid form? Enjoy cider and cheese for a pairing to remember.

    English style: drier, more like a beer, with nice acidity.

    Pair with: Just about anything but we love it with firm natural rind cheese, like Landaff.



    Basque/Normandy : barnyardy and funky, but still with a little sweetness.

    Pair with: A beefy washed rind, like Grayson to contrast the sugar and bring out the funk.



    American Cider: often, but not always on the sweeter side.

    Pair with: Sweet and earthy Bleu Mont Bandaged Cheddar or malty Bleu d’Auvergne.

How did a family in Norwalk, Iowa come to produce some of the best cured meats in the world? It started with tradition: After three and a half years in Parma, Italy, Herb and Kathy Eckhouse brought classic techniques back home to create their signature salumi, something they say “expresses our appreciation for the beauty and bounty of Iowa”. Adding responsible sourcing and sustainability to the recipe means that their products don’t just taste great, they’re also produced with the highest standards and best quality ingredients around. To help more people get a bite of the good stuff, we now offer the full La Quercia line as well as curated selections that will make any meat lover squeal with delight.
