Fiocco di Prosciutto (cured ham flake) is obtained only from the most valuable portion of the Italian pork thigh. It's a lean product with a delicate taste. Salted by hand, it is then aged in traditional cellars. It is externally protected by a portion of rind and by grease on the muscle part without rind: these peculiarities allow the flake to maintain the typical softness and aroma that distinguish this jewel within the local cured meat production.
Before slicing, it is necessary to trim away the grease and the rind starting from the thickest part and continuing up to the point where you intend to cut the last slice. The product is suitable to be consumed as an appetizer, as a second course or as an ingredient in culinary preparations.
Due to its versatility and use in the kitchen, the flake with rind combines well with different types of wine, both sparkling and firm, according to taste.
It is recommended to protect the cut part with cling film and then wrap the product in a dishcloth, before storing it in the refrigerator (in the wine cooler, if there is one).
Our cured meats come from pigs that are born, raised slaughtered and transformed in Italy
