Written in bright red capital letters with bold arrows pointing to it as a constant reminder to just simply GO! Well, after learning the ins and outs about a certain prosciutto produced in Parma, I know exactly where I want to go when I visit Italy for the first time.
Parma is a city located in the rolling countryside of North-Central Italy, away from the hustle and bustle of Rome. This quaint city is known for it’s world-famous air-cured hams thanks to the aromatic breezes from the Apennine Mountains.
Now, when it comes to making specialty cured hams, one doesn’t get there simply by happenstance. When making Prosciutto di Parma, tradition says you only need four ingredients: specially raised Italian pigs (which are regulated by the Consorzio del Prosciutto di Parma), sea salt, air, and time. The latter being one of the most important because some hams take up to 36 months to cure!
