If the butcher places the prosciutto on an automatic slicer, you aren’t getting the real thing. This rustic cut proscuitto comes from Norcia in Umbria. It sells for 22 Euro per kilo or about $15 per pound and is worth every penny. This prosciutto has been aged a minimum of 20 months and is at its best on a piece of unsalted bread, or with some melon or fresh figs depending on the season.
