HOW TO CHOOSE AN AUTHENTIC PROSCIUTTO
• Look for the shape of the slice. Prosciutto is oval/ oblong … not a regular pressed shape. • Colour is important. Prosciutto is pink to red, never dark red or brownish. • Fat needs to be white and easy to cut. Also, you should be able to see a small amount of white fat near the middle where the leg was deboned. • Finally, look at the label. Chose products where the provenience is clearly specified.
