Considered the best American cured prosciutto, La Quercia Berkshire Prosciutto is a delight for any cured meat fan. The pig itself is a purebred Berkshire pig raised in Iowa with no GMO or antibiotics.
The look of the cut is beautiful, and the marbling of the fat looks great. The texture is super smooth, buttery and rich, as any great prosciutto should be. While you do experience a strong meaty flavor, what you don’t taste is the the salt from curing. The flavor ventures into gamey, but stays within the bounds of a great slice of prosciutto. Perfect for any charcuterie board, on stone fired pizza or for any dish that calls for a little down home elegance.
La Quercia Berkshire Prosciutto is available at the Cheese Shop at both Jungle Jim’s locations for 29.99/lb.
