Devodier Prosciutto Di Parma - Whole Leg
It's your favorite Italian ham and a whole darn (14 pound) leg of it!
Massage, you say? Prosciutto di Parma has been made in essentially the same way since the Romans: by massaging the hind legs of whey-fed hogs (leftover from the production of Parmigiano Reggiano) with salt, washing, then dry-aging the meat for 30 months, exceeding the usual cap of 24 months. This Prosciutto di Parma, made by master prosciutto craftsman imported exclusively by Murray's, is made according to the scrupulous standards set by The Consortium, which regulates production, stamping all worthy rumps with a crown tattoo when they pass inspection. DOP (Protected Designation of Origin) certified prosciutto comes from pigs raised in a specific area surrounding Parma, where the meat is aged in the soft winds that pass through olive groves and spruce, creating an ideal microclimate that enhances the meat's sweetness. Ours is rolled, not pressed, which accentuates the silken texture and gives it a distinctly fruit forward aroma.
