Description: Lightly smoked, three-month old Prosciutto from the Alto Adige.
The first three months of Speck dell' Alto Adige are identical to that of Prosciutto di Parma. After a heavy salting, it is hung to dry in barns where it absorbs the flavor of the surrounding area. After 12 weeks, however, the prime cut of Prosciutto is sliced off, at which point it is rubbed with black pepper and juniper berries and lightly smoked over balsam wood. The result is the beautiful, silky-soft, pleasantly smoky Speck. Due to its full flavor and reasonable price, we always suggest Speck to the customer looking for a cooking Prosciutto. It melds well with so many other flavors: wrap it around scallops and pan sear in rosemary oil, cube it and saute with onions and peas for pasta, substitute it in place of Pancetta when making Carbonara (with Fiore Sardo DOP), or simply ask for it sliced and snack on it with your favorite table cheese. The possibilities are endless!
